Covid-19 legt raciale ongelijkheid in VS bloot

April 14, 2020 - Volgens een CDC-studie is één op de drie Amerikanen die met de corona-ziekte (Covid-19) in het ziekenhuis is opgenomen, zwart, ondanks dat Afro-Amerikanen slechts 13 procent van de bevolking uitmaken.

By contrast, the report found that 45 percent of hospitalisations were among white people, who make up 60 percent of the population. And 8 percent of hospitalisations were among Hispanics, who make up 18 percent of the population.

The study of some 580 hospitalised patients in 14 states underscores the long-standing racial disparities in healthcare in the United States, NPR said.
