The United States COVID-19 Pandemic in the Flood Season

(0) no reviews yet

This article outlines a tool that assesses the compound risk of COVID-19 at the county level. The article found that the number of flood insurance house claims can proxy the displaced population accurately with more spatiotemporal detail, and the high-risk areas of both flooding and COVID-19 are concentrated along the southern and eastern coasts and some parts of the Mississippi River. Flooding continuously displaces the public which in turn increases vulnerable populationsā€˜ exposure to COVID-19. Because many states did not decrease the number of people infected with COVID-19 during the first wave, there is a high chance that states will experience concurrent disasters. This resource includes:

  • Visuals on COVID-19 transmissivity
  • Risk characterization

Recommended for emergency environmental and public health professionals to understand the relationship between COVID-19 cases and transmission and how they are influenced by public evacuation during a flooding disaster.
