2022 Public health stories #9

Curated public health stories for this week from my reading shelf for Week 9 of 2022.


Read the Atlantic article “The Pandemic Is Following a Very Predictable and Depressing Pattern

“As with diseases such as malaria and HIV, rich countries are “moving on” from COVID while poor ones continue to get ravaged.”


The Times article on “How America Can Rebuild the Community Bonds It Needs to Face the Next Pandemic

“This pandemic will not be our last, and other massive “we” problems like climate change will also require “we” solutions. We urgently need to come together and rebuild the tools to protect our society.

A very important JAMA original research on how social determinants of health have impacted COVID-19 mortality “Assessment of Structural Barriers and Racial Group Disparities of COVID-19 Mortality With Spatial Analysis
