Blackout ou panne de secteur : impacts des coupures de courant sur la mortalité et les hospitalisations à New York Volume 17, issue 6, November-December 2018



This news is based on the following article: Dominianni C, Lane K, Johnson S, Ito K, Matte T. Health impacts of citywide and localized power outages in New York City. Environ Health Perspect 2018 ; 126(6) : 067003. doi : 10.1289/EHP2154


Adding to the knowledge about the health impact of the 2003 citywide power outage in New York, this article suggests that less extensive outages can also affect mortality and emergency hospitalizations, with seasonal variations.
