Covid-19 expõe a disparidade racial nos EUA

April 14, 2020 - Um em cada três americanos hospitalizados com a doença do coronavírus (Covid-19) é negro, apesar de os negros americanos constituírem apenas 13 por cento da população dos EUA, segundo um estudo do CDC.

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.
