At A Glance
This book is the first social epidemiological study of COVID-19 spread in New York City (NYC), the primary epicenter of the United States. New York City spread COVID-19 throughout the United States. The context of epicenter formation determined the rapid, extreme rise of NYC case and mortality rates. Decades of public policies destructive of poor neighborhoods of color heavily determined the spread within the City. Premature mortality rates revealed the weathering of policy-targeted communities: accelerated aging due to chronic stress. COVID attacks the elderly more severely than those under the age of 60. Communities with high proportions of prematurely aged residents proved fertile ground for COVID illness and mortality. The very public policies that created swaths of white wealth across much of Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn destroyed the human diversity needed to ride out crises. the chapters include:Premature Death Rate Geography in New York City: Implications for COVID-19NYC COVID Markers at the ZIP Code LevelProsperos New Castles: COVID Infection and Premature Mortality in the NY Metro RegionPandemic Firefighting vs. Pandemic Fire PreventionConclusion: Scales of Time in Disasters exemplary study in health disparities, COVID-19 in New York City: An Ecology of Race and Class Oppressionis essential reading for social epidemiologists, public health researchers of health disparities, those in public service tasked with addressing these problems, and infectious disease scientists who focus on spread in human populations of new zoonotic diseases.
