What’s Behind The COVID-19 Racial Disparity? by Sangkyun: 4:48am On Sep 17
COVID-19 shockedly killed black people. Black Americans have a higher rate of illness than whites. Nursing homes with black residents turned into outbreaks. A study published last week by Cary P. Gross of Yale University and co-authors showed that blacks die from COVID-19 at a higher rate than whites, and the rate is even higher. If you consider age, blacks are on average younger than whites, so they should die at a lower death rate rather than a higher death rate. The death rate of blacks is 3.57 times that of whites.
