Get Out Of Here, Covid Is Killing White Rural Americans At Twice The Rate Of People In Urban Areas😏😏
Church this is interesting, all I'm saying with this post is they can thank Faux news and Republicans for all the misinformation. The pandemic is devastating white rural America, where lower vaccination rates are compounding the already limited medical care. Rural Americans are dying of Covid at more than twice the rate of their urban counterparts — a divide that health experts say is likely to widen as access to medical care shrinks for a population that tends to be older, sicker, heavier, poorer and less vaccinated. While the initial surge of Covid-19 deaths skipped over much of rural America, where roughly 15 percent of Americans live, nonmetropolitan mortality rates quickly started to outpace those of metropolitan areas as the virus spread nationwide before vaccinations became available, according to data from the Rural Policy Research Institute.
