Where COVID-19 Spreads Like Wildfire

People least able to control their environment—those in homeless shelters, prisons, and crowded group homes—are highly vulnerable to COVID-19, yet they’re being ignored, researchers warn.

“These populations will become the sources of new outbreaks, even when we feel like we kind of have it under control,” says Gina Neff, a University of Oxford sociologist.

Currently, most shelters still reserve tests for people with symptoms—or they only test broadly after an outbreak has occurred. A more proactive test, treat and trace approach is needed, Amy Maxmen writes.
