The shocking prevalence of COVID-19 in Orange County minority communities

Bernadette Boden-Albala, director and founding dean of the Program in Public Health at UCI writes, “A new study from UC Irvine and the Orange County Health Care Agency shows COVID-19’s true prevalence in the community, and it paints a shocking picture. This study, called the actOC project, is the first of its kind in California and presents data that shows striking health disparities revealed in higher rates of COVID-19 antibodies among minority communities in Orange County.”
