Investigating the Dynamics of Local Public Health System Capabilities and its Implications on Public Health

local_public_health_system_capabilities_and_covid-19_death_rates[72].jpg Efforts to contain the health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have achieved less success in the United States than in many comparable countries.

Our study explored this relationship by using a nationally representative sample of 725 US communities.
