The study shows that the Primary care Health Professional Shortage Areas have a higher incidence of Covid-19 infection related mortality compared to Not Primary care Health Professional Shortage Areas. Also, the HPSA characteristic shows the highest incidence rate ratios(IRR) of deaths when compared to other population charateristics.
