COVID-19 infections are hitting rural communities especially hard. A team of researchers at the University of Cincinnati have found that in parts of the country where the virus is surging, residents in rural communities are dying at higher rates than those in urban areas.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the research is University of Cincinnati Assistant Professor of Health Geography and Disease Modeling Diego Cuadros, Ph.D., who runs the the Health Geography and Disease Modeling Lab at UC.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
