Epidemiology Feedback on Daily Life
The Covid-19-Covid Audit is a collaboration between Elemental and the Epidemiologic Covid-19 Response Corps at the Boston University School of Public Health. The series asks real people to document what they’re doing to avoid Covid-19 and gives expert feedback on actions that can be taken to support both personal and public health. This week, the diarist is a lawyer who normally lives in Maryland with his wife and their school-aged daughter. His wife is both a busy, high-powered lawyer and a breast-cancer survivor undergoing treatments, putting her at higher risk for Covid-19. In March, her physician suggested she’d be safer in a less-populated area, so the family decamped to their small vacation condo in South Carolina. Here’s their story and what epidemiologists think.
