Exposure density and neighbourhood disparities in COVID-19 infection risk: Study

Researchers report that neighbourhood changes in exposure density a measure of activity associated with increased risk of exposure to COVID-19-infected individuals in New York City in response to a statewide stay-at-home order were associated with COVID-19 case, fatality, and test positivity rates; low-income and predominantly minority communities had the smallest relative decreases in exposure density and disproportionately poor health outcomes, according to the authors.
