COVID-19 Cases Are Clustered in Large Urban Hubs, but Rural Areas Surrounding Those Hubs Are Also Increasingly Affected

From the Document: "Confirmed cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] are not evenly distributed across the U.S. Thus far, confirmed cases are mainly clustered in the Mid-Atlantic region, Florida, along the West Coast, and in large central cities throughout the middle of the U.S. Given larger populations, it is no surprise that there are more cases in the most urban parts of the U.S., particularly those with large airport hubs, but some nonmetropolitan counties are also being affected. [...] Dense populations and heavy traffic contribute in important ways to the spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19. Physical distancing can help flatten the curve of this pandemic. Even though there are fewer confirmed cases in rural areas right now, COVID-19 cases will soon begin increasing in rural areas. Mortality rates could be higher in rural areas given their older and sicker population composition and their more limited capacity for treating cases."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
