Black Americans Face Alarming Rates of Coronavirus Infection in Some States

Racial inequality is hidden in the coronavirus statistics. New York city is not collecting demographic information of those that have been tested. Blacks seem to be the most vulnerable to coronavirus where this data has been collected. I wonder how Hispanics are doing. It is clear that being forced to work, no easy access to healthcare, bias when testing is requested, red lining of areas where poor people live, poor health and nutrition and lack of supermarkets with fruits and vegetables — these are indicators of an at-risk population. Puerto Rico’s government is even hiding statistics — a terrible sign of ominous bad news in the future, specially if you want to attract healthy Americans to come to your country and spend money.
