Tracking Covid-19 Data, Racial and Social Inequities

Hamden and New Haven County are diverse communities with some dense urban populations.  In a world under incredible pressures, everyone wants to stay informed and more information is available than ever before.  Yet our social-media dominated society can feel exhausting, frustrating, riddled with misinformation and distractions.  We have compiled a few empirical sources of data concerning Covid-19 statistics statewide, narrowed to counties and towns, then adjusted by race and ethnicity.  These are some important sources to monitor:

Connecticut State Covid-19 Data

Covid-19 Racial Data Tracker

John Hopkins University Covid-19 Race & Ethnicity Statistics
