Chennai: A new study comparing the incidence of sudden deaths occurring outside the hospital across New York City's highly diverse neighbourhoods with the percentage of positive SARS-CoV-19 tests found that increased sudden deaths during the pandemic correlate to the extent of virus infection in a neighbourhood.
“Our research shows the highly diverse regional distribution of out-of-hospital sudden death during the Covid-19 pandemic surge and follows the geographic distribution of seroconversion to SARS-CoV-2 in New York City” explained lead investigator Stavros E. Mountantonakis.
“This finding adds to the previously reported association between out-of-hospital sudden death and Covid-19 presumed deaths and further supports an association between out-of-hospital sudden death and SARS-COV-2 epidemiologic burden” added Mountantonakis.
The investigators collected results of all antibody tests reported to the New York City Department of Health between 3 March 3 and 20 August 2020 for all New York City zip codes excluding eight commercial districts.
New York City requires mandatory reporting of all tests.
