Wide range of COVID-19 infection rates in rural counties in May

The Daily Yonder continued their ongoing tracking of COVID-19 cases in rural counties with a recent piece summarizing the situation during May 2020. Authors found that rural counties were on both ends of the spectrum—352 rural counties had no cases in May, while three quarters of the top 100 U.S. counties with the highest infection rates were also rural counties. The counties in which Navajo Nation falls are among the regions with the highest infection and death rates in the nation. #covid-19 #rural
