Iyanda, A.E., Boakye, K.A., Lu, Y. and Oppong, J. (2021). Racial/Ethnic Heterogeneity and Rural-Urban Disparity of COVID-19 Case Fatality Ratio in the USA: a Negative Binomial and GIS-Based Analysis. Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities. DOI: 10.1007/s40615-021-01006-7.
This article discusses results of a cross-sectional study that examined determinants of COVID-19 case fatality ratio (CFR) based on publicly sourced data from January 1 to December 18, 2020. The authors concluded that “rural counties have a COVID-19 case fatality ratio higher than the national rate,” with minority populations experiencing the greatest impact.
