As the coronavirus spreads to more parts of the U.S., it could reach communities with especially vulnerable populations — ones that have a high rate of underlying health conditions. Here’s where the virus could exact a heavy toll.
The intersection of Non-Communicable Diseases and Emerging Infectious Diseases (NCD-EIDs), and assessing their risk together, is critical. Something we've been addressing in our research , and glad to see the releasing these analyses.
As the coronavirus spreads to more parts of the U.S., it is reaching communities with especially vulnerable populations — ones that have a high rate of underlying health conditions: large parts of the South and Appalachia

Really nice data visualization of areas where #COVID19 could hit communities particularly hard. ⁦⁩ ⁦
Must-read: Where U.S residents are at increased risk for severe Covid-19 illness, compared with the national average, because of chronic health conditions. The latest from et al
#SARSCoV2 “is highly contagious & we have no vaccine, so it will inevitably sweep through our pops (w/o strong prev measures)...Once it does, the overall health of a community will matter.” I fear the SE 🇺🇸 will be devastated by #COVID19 before it’s over.
5/ This article illustrates a map where U.S residents are at greater risk for severe #coronavirus illness based on the proportion of residents with diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and/or chronic lung disease
Great maps from on vulnerable populations and opportunities to be forward thinking with our policy before things get worse in these areas. “Can we pinpoint where more testing needs to be done or made accessible?” 👏👏👏#healthdisparities #inequality

Ironic that people in the region most intensely covid-afflicted so far—the Philadelphia-NYC-Boston corridor—are among the least unhealthy Americans in terms of comorbid underlying conditions.
