California Latinos have highest death rate of COVID19

 

740 deaths represent almost half of all California cases.

  • It’s a scary wake-up call! Please practice safe-distancing, wear masks, and wash vigorously your hands.
  • Latino households across the country are being pummeled by the COVID-19 outbreak. It’s impacted both their medical and economic health.

About:

Latinos make up about 18 percent of the U.S. population. But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Latinos represent more than 27 percent of COVID-19 deaths in areas considered to be virus hotspots.

Latinos may be more vulnerable to the virus as a result of the same factors that have put minorities at risk across the country. Many have low-paying service jobs that require them to work through the pandemic, interacting with the public. A large number also lack access to health care, which contributes to higher rates of diabetes and other conditions that can worsen infections.

Below you’ll find updated statistics.
