MHA 507 University of Phoenix Infected Cases in United States Report
Now that we know where the outbreaks are located, your organization wants to know more about who it affects. The age of the patient will determine what kind of resources will be needed in those areas.(See Prevouse Paper attached)
Create a side-by-side bar graph using Microsoft Excel® and the data provided in the Ages Impacted (See Attached document) to identify the age groups affected by the virus.
Note: This information will be used for further analysis in future assignments.

What are the top five cities for infected cases?
According to the provided data and the bar graph output, the five most infectious cities with leading virus cases are Jacksonville, Miami, Phoenix, Austin, and Houston. The virus infection rate in these cities follows in their respective order, with Jacksonville topping the chart.
How many infected cases does each of those cities have?
In the five US cities topping the infection chart with the dangerous virus, Jacksonville recorded the highest number of 322 cases, and it was the only city that went beyond the 300 level. It was followed by Miami that indicated 299 cases, which was still higher since it was closer to 300. Phoenix and Austin followed with their plights holding at 289 and 281, respectively. However, Houston had the lowest cases in the top-five category since it did not attain the 280 level, with the city’s infections being 272.
What is the prevalence rate per 100,000 people?
In calculating the prevalence rate, we consider the total number of infections in all fifty cities. The figure is then divided by 100,000, and multiplied by 100.
The Prevalence Rate = (total infection cases/ 100,000) * 100.
From the excel calculations, the total number of infection plights in all fifty cities is 4,852 cases.
The Prevalence Rate = (4,852/ 100,000) * 100
It implies that the dangerous virus is spreading at the rate of 4.852% among 100,000 people in all the identified US cities.
Since the total cases in five leading cities is 1,363, we can also calculate their prevalence rate per 100,000 people as shown below;
The Prevalence Rate = (1,363/ 100,000) * 100
The result indicates that the dangerous virus is spreading at the rate of 1.363% among 100,000 people in the five cities topping the infection chart.
What else can be deduced after evaluating the chart?
From the bar chart, it is possible to have various observations. Given the total number of cities involved, the chart depicts outlier cases. Some few cities fall on the extreme ends. For example, the ones identified above recorded higher infection cases as opposed to most that have moderate levels, while another fraction also has very minimal cases. It implies that the country does not suffer evenly from the dangerous virus; some suffer a lot, while the rest seem to have taken precautionary measures, and they have the issue at bay. In summary, most cities have controlled the prevalence since they either indicate moderate or smaller virus cases, as opposed to a few that that recorded figures beyond 200.

Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.

Important information for writing discussion questions and participation
Welcome to class
Hello class and welcome to the class and I will be your instructor for this course. This is a -week course and requires a lot of time commitment, organization, and a high level of dedication. Please use the class syllabus to guide you through all the assignments required for the course. I have also attached the classroom policies to this announcement to know your expectations for this course. Please review this document carefully and ask me any questions if you do. You could email me at any time or send me a message via the “message” icon in halo if you need to contact me. I check my email regularly, so you should get a response within 24 hours. If you have not heard from me within 24 hours and need to contact me urgently, please send a follow up text to
I strongly encourage that you do not wait until the very last minute to complete your assignments. Your assignments in weeks 4 and 5 require early planning as you would need to present a teaching plan and interview a community health provider. I advise you look at the requirements for these assignments at the beginning of the course and plan accordingly. I have posted the YouTube link that explains all the class assignments in detail. It is required that you watch this 32-minute video as the assignments from week 3 through 5 require that you follow the instructions to the letter to succeed. Failure to complete these assignments according to instructions might lead to a zero. After watching the video, please schedule a one-on-one with me to discuss your topic for your project by the second week of class. Use this link to schedule a 15-minute session. Please, call me at the time of your appointment on my number. Please note that I will NOT call you.
Please, be advised I do NOT accept any assignments by email. If you are having technical issues with uploading an assignment, contact the technical department and inform me of the issue. If you have any issues that would prevent you from getting your assignments to me by the deadline, please inform me to request a possible extension. Note that working fulltime or overtime is no excuse for late assignments. There is a 5%-point deduction for every day your assignment is late. This only applies to approved extensions. Late assignments will not be accepted.
If you think you would be needing accommodations due to any reasons, please contact the appropriate department to request accommodations.
Plagiarism is highly prohibited. Please ensure you are citing your sources correctly using APA 7th edition. All assignments including discussion posts should be formatted in APA with the appropriate spacing, font, margin, and indents. Any papers not well formatted would be returned back to you, hence, I advise you review APA formatting style. I have attached a sample paper in APA format and will also post sample discussion responses in subsequent announcements.
Your initial discussion post should be a minimum of 200 words and response posts should be a minimum of 150 words. Be advised that I grade based on quality and not necessarily the number of words you post. A minimum of TWO references should be used for your initial post. For your response post, you do not need references as personal experiences would count as response posts. If you however cite anything from the literature for your response post, it is required that you cite your reference. You should include a minimum of THREE references for papers in this course. Please note that references should be no more than 5 years old except recommended as a resource for the class. Furthermore, for each discussion board question, you need ONE initial substantive response and TWO substantive responses to either your classmates or your instructor for a total of THREE responses. There are TWO discussion questions each week, hence, you need a total minimum of SIX discussion posts for each week. I usually post a discussion question each week. You could also respond to these as it would count towards your required SIX discussion posts for the week.
I understand this is a lot of information to cover in 5 weeks, however, the Bible says in Philippians 4:13 that we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us. Even in times like this, we are encouraged by God’s word that we have that ability in us to succeed with His strength. I pray that each and every one of you receives strength for this course and life generally as we navigate through this pandemic that is shaking our world today. Relax and enjoy the course!
