Abstract (300 words maximum)

The recent pandemic has had quite the effect on people around the globe concerning staying clean and healthy, and as things start to go back to normal due to lowering of the lockdowns and other Covid precautions, many around the world will most likely return to a relatively less sanitary lifestyle that was rather prevalent before the pandemic, which may increase the risk of potentially dying from normal diseases and illnesses. This project aims to expose that as a warning to others that even though the pandemic might be lessening, this will not mean that everything will be perfectly safe without an effort to keep yourself and others clean and living healthier lifestyles to have a better chance of being safe from disease. For context, this project will be examining the deaths of Cobb County residents and their causes before the pandemic hit. To be more specific, the project will take place between the years 2015 and 2019. Some of the questions that this project will look at is “how many people died in Cobb County during these years?”, “did they die from a disease?”, and “how unsanitary were they beforehand?”. The project will also look at factors such as age, and sex. The anticipated findings that I highly expect to have from this project is that those who did not live relatively clean and healthy lifestyles will have a decreased chance of faring well from diseases and illnesses than those who did live healthier lifestyles before the pandemic. I will be able to use that conclusion to help people in their decision to live a cleaner lifestyle.
