Coronavirus (351) Seeking research on projected estimates for cases among homeless people

6 April, 2020


Do any of you know of research that looks specifically at estimating the prevalence of COVID-19 among homeless individuals?

I had heard there was some work done in Seattle or Washington state, but I could not locate this in all the usual sources.

I do know about these:





UC Berkeley Basic Needs Center

(frequently updated info: food, money, other urgent needs)

Crisis Counseling for Urgent Concerns (UCB UHS)

Remote Resources for UC Berkeley Library Users

You are welcome to contact me via Zoom, Hangouts, or email if you are in need of conversation
