Counties have varying level of risk for COVID outbreak, per Cornell University study

A Cornell University study shows counties’ risk factors associated with a COVID-19 outbreak.

The report included a map, which can be examined in-full by clicking here.

It took on demographic and health factors, weighing them to determine the overall vulnerability of any given community.

“While the overlap between demographic and health vulnerability is not strong, there are several counties that rank in the riskiest-quartile on both measures, including Allegany, Chenango, Clinton, Orleans and Seneca,” the report says. The rankings back up the point, which shows that most counties in the region fall in the middle of the overall rankings.

Here is each county’s ranking in New York:

Cayuga: 18
Ontario: 52
Onondaga: 39
Monroe: 43
Schuyler: 31
Seneca: 8
Tompkins: 58
Wayne: 47
Yates: 38
