Another part not so much:
New figures compiled by the non-partisan APM Research Lab and released on Wednesday under the title Color of Coronavirus provide further evidence of the staggering divide in the Covid-19 death rate between black Americans and the rest of the nation.
Across the country, African Americans have died at a rate of 50.3 per 100,000 people, compared with 20.7 for whites, 22.9 for Latinos and 22.7 for Asian Americans.
More than 20,000 African Americans – about one in 2,000 of the entire black population in the US – have died from the disease.
The disparity, sure we’d like to know why it happens. But the overall rate – 0.05% of the population. Not, exactly and precisely, an horrendous pandemic. Black Death, for an extreme contrast, was 30%.
As to the why, until we see figures corrected for socioeconomic position we’ll be able to extract nothing of use from he numbers.
