ABSTRACT

Assessing Underlying State Conditions and Ramp-Up Challenges for the COVID-19 Response   [open html - 0B]

From the Article: "An unprecedented pandemic has exploded within the U.S. COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] has now reached all 50 states and is disrupting life in large urban areas including Seattle, the Bay Area, and New York City. The rapid spread of a virus with an undefined risk of death has forced state and local governments and health systems to act urgently to mitigate the spread and respond to an increasing number of infected Americans. The speed of transmission threatens to strain health system capacity and presents a clear and present risk to health care workers. Mounting hospitalizations and intensive care needs appear to involve adults of all ages."
