Within weeks of COVID-19’s emergence in the United States, its disproportionate devastation in Black and the Latino communities became a leading story. Across the country, it remains a disease that is killing African Americans and Native Americans faster than others. Fifty thousand African Americans have died from COVID-19. Black and Latino people account for eighteen per cent of those who have died from COVID-19 complications, far higher than their thirteen per cent of the national population. Even in Alaska, African Americans are dying because of COVID-19 at a rate higher than their proportion in the state.
