Forum: National study of social and structural drivers of COVID-19 diagnoses and deaths among Hispanic/Latinos
The panel will discuss the findings of the study "Risk for COVID-19 infection and death among Latinos in the United States: Examining heterogeneity in transmission dynamics". This study is the first nationwide analysis of COVID-19 cases and deaths among Latinos.

"We found that crowded housing, air pollution, jobs in the meatpacking and poultry industry and other factors put Latinos at high risk of COVID-19 infections and death," said lead author of the study Carlos E. Rodriguez-Diaz, Ph.D., MPH.

Latinos have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19; as of June 8, 2020, they account for one in three (33%) of all confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. with known ethnicity/race data. Furthermore, Latinos account for approximately one in five of all confirmed COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S.
