Covid easier to spread among large populations in small counties

Chief Medical Officer Dr. Roshan Parasram presented a few findings on the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the various counties.

An interesting finding was although some counties are larger than others, they actually have less population density than others. This means that the Covid-19 disease would not spread as much as it would in a smaller area with a larger population.

For example, although the Nariva County is larger than St. George West County, there are more active cases in the latter.

However, it must be noted that the population density was based on a 2010 census.

Dr. Parasram did focus on the St. George West county and explained a few key findings.

He also noted the comorbidities break down in the same County and compared it to the Victoria County.
