Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, many adults chose to delay or forego medical care

Researchers from the Texas A&M University School of Public Health found that approximately one-third of adults, ages 18–64, decided to either forego or delay medical care during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. These decisions were often tied to limited financial resources, poor health or mental health issues.
