This is the trend nationwide. A virus that started out affecting affluent whites has now spread to our community and is now affecting us at an alarming rate. We do not have black hospitals or teams of black doctors working at black facilities to counter this disparity. Can’t have what we refuse to build. We are at the mercy of a system and those who historically contributed to and exploited black deaths, pain and suffering. And miss me with doctors take an oath. These are the same doctors who in many cases who take money from medicare/medicaid and big pharma while turning a blind eye to environmental racism and disparities in healthcare. The health related problems we suffered as a result were inconsequential.
The coronavirus is infecting and killing black Americans at an alarmingly high rate
A Washington Post analysis shows that majority-black countues have three times the number of infections and almost six times the number of deaths as counties where white residents are in the majority.
