Nearly 7% of the U.S.’s college students reported being “sick” with COVID-19 during or since spring 2020, a recent national survey found.
Self-reported infection rates were higher among racial and ethnic minorities than among white students, and those who self-reported contracting the virus were more likely than others to have experienced food insecurity, anxiety or depression, according to the survey, which was conducted by the Hope Center for College, Community and Justice at Temple University.
The survey queried 100,000 students at 202 institutions in 42 states.
