Crowding is Fuel For Coronavirus
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Public health officials warn that living or working in close proximity to others is like kindling for a coronavirus fire. Crowds fuel the spread of infection from the novel coronavirus. Nursing homes nationwide have been hard hit, now medical experts look to places like meatpacking plants and prisons as epicenters of the virus. Health officials expressed their concern in a report published by ABC News. Officials reported that the virus is spreading from tightly packed urban centers like New York City and infesting rural areas because of crowded spaces. Nursing homes are health officials’ primary focus. Still, they are closely monitoring other facilities that place many people in close contact with each other because of the potential that one positive patient could spark an outbreak of the virus. *
Nursing homes are the deadliest places for COVID-19 in the country. Washington, D.C., and the health departments in 35 states have released statistics indicating that over 26,000 people living in long-term healthcare facilities have died from COVID-19.
Population density is the most significant factor leading to the spread of the coronavirus. Living and working amongst a large number of people creates a hazardous situation and makes transmission of the virus easy. Meatpacking plants, food processing plants and poultry packing plants are industries that force people to work remarkably close to one another. The inability of workers to separate themselves from their coworkers, coupled with the lack of appropriate protective gear, allows the virus to jump from one employee to another. The coronavirus similarly spreads through prison populations despite efforts to social distance.
