One assumes that COVID-19 was just an urban area issue, but a report in 'healthline' states that rural counties in Colorado, Utah, and Idaho that rely on tourism are experiencing some of the highest rates of COVID-19.
Media news reports state that because rural populations tend to be older, sicker, and with fewer resources, they're more vulnerable to the disease. As the COVID-19 spreads across all areas of the United States, rural areas according to the reports, may be the hardest hit, because of their demographics and limited resources.
In order to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, rural communities need to implement telehealth to improve access to care and services, say health experts. Because of the non-availability of broadband , and limited internet, providers should leverage using text-based telehealth platforms that will facilitate rural Americans to access healthcare services through their cellular service.
