Poverty and the Pandemic in Mississippi

Authors:

The Mississippi Delta and other rural areas in the state are being hardest hit by the pandemic. Already isolated from decent health care, many who live in Mississippi suffer from a litany of health problems that make them prey to COVID-19 if they become infected. Many deaths in Mississippi from COVID-19 have been in rural Mississippi counties—where hospitals have disappeared and where high-risk illnesses make the coronavirus even deadlier.
