Lost on the frontline: This database from Kaiser Health News and The Guardian honors American healthcare workers who died during the COVID-19 pandemic. We featured this source when it was launched back in August 2020. At that time, 167 workers were included in the interactive database; now, you can read the profiles of hundreds more. 3,607 deaths have been recorded in total. KHN and The Guardian closed their joint investigation this week, and public health leaders and policymakers are now calling on the federal government to continue this crucial work.
Food Insecurity in the United States: Nonprofit hunger relief organization Feeding America has compiled and mapped data showing how the pandemic has impacted food insecurity in the U.S. You can search for a specific state, county, or local food bank to see food-insecure population estimates, average meal costs, food stamp program eligibility, and more.
