NO COVID-19 SITUATION REPORT TOMORROW We will not be publishing the COVID-19 Situation Report tomorrow, June 18, because the Johns Hopkins University will be closed in observance of the Juneteenth holiday this weekend. We will resume on Tuesday, June 22, with more updates.
SYSTEMIC RACISM & COVID-19 The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, Center for Health Equity, Center for American Indian Health, and Center for Public Health and Human Rights at the Bloomberg School of Public Health collaborated to publish a Supplemental Issue of the peer-reviewed journal Health Security dedicated to systemic racism in the context of COVID-19. The open access issue examines how systemic racism manifests in the practice of health security in the US and its impact on the preparedness for, response to, and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This effort aims to fill critical gaps in peer-reviewed research that examines the root causes of racial and ethnic inequities in COVID-19-associated morbidity and mortality as well as the systems that perpetuate them in order to identify priorities and recommendations for mitigating their effects.
