Long Covid Map: Prevalence & Economic Impact
This interactive map, produced by the Solve Long Covid Initiative, supplements our whitepaper, Long Covid’s Impact on Adult Americans: Early Indicators Estimating Prevalence and Cost.
The figures represented in this map reflects data from two survey models (C-19 LAP, Whitaker) that could be used to calculate state-level data representing healthcare costs and lost earnings experienced by individuals with Disabling Long Covid, providing a glimpse into the economic impact of Long Covid on a state-by-state basis.
These are conservative estimates based on reported cases and do not reflect the potential impact of unreported cases.
