|Health Disparities And The COVID-19 Pandemic by Ellstark: 4:54am On Sep 17|
In the past few weeks, public health officials and the media have drawn our attention to the huge racial, ethnic, and economic gap surrounding COVID-19. Blacks and American Indians have the highest death rates. Nationwide, blacks are 2.4 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than non-Latino whites, and in some states, the death rate is seven times higher. The damage suffered by the Navajo people is particularly severe. The death rates of the indigenous people in Arizona and New Mexico are 5-7 times higher. A closer look at California’s statistics reveals that the death rate among Latin Americans between the ages of 35-49 is depressing. They account for 74% of all COVID-19 deaths in this age group.
