3,810 U.S. areas with lead poisoning double Flint's, Reuters finds | 14 Nov 2017 | Since last year, Reuters has obtained neighborhood-level blood lead testing results for 34 states and the District of Columbia. In all, Reuters has identified 3,810 neighborhood areas with recently recorded childhood lead poisoning rates at least double those found across Flint, Michigan, during the peak of that city's water contamination crisis in 2014 and 2015. Some 1,300 of these hotspots had a rate of elevated blood tests at least four times higher than Flint's.
