Faculty Affiliate Scott Landes Interviewed for NYT Article

Scott Landes was interviewed for this New York Times article: Developmental Disabilities Raise Risk of Covid Death. The article cites a new study that finds those with intellectual and developmental disabilities are three times more likely to die of COVID19. Landes addresses these findings: “Historically, it’s been a challenge for this population to receive good medical care. Because of their disabilities, they may have difficulty wearing a mask or maintaining social distance, or even understanding why the precautions are needed.”
