"In New York City, the epicenter of the country's pandemic, the death toll of blacks and Latinos is about twice that of the total population. In Chicago, the gap is even more serious: blacks account for 70% of coronavirus deaths, but about 30% of the city's population.
In early April, before Wisconsin voted in person, about 80% of the coronavirus deaths in Milwaukee were black, although the black share of the city's population was only 25%. Since then, seven more coronavirus cases have been related to voting on election day, but the full impact of virus transmission is still unclear.
These statistics shocked many people, but environmental justice experts and advocates were not surprised. "
