Latinos across the US are disproportionately getting sick from coronavirus, in some regions being infected and hospitalized at up to three times the rate of white Americans, a Guardian analysis found.
And the Latino communities that are worst hit by the crisis are among the least able to access the healthcare systems and unemployment benefits that could bring relief.
New data trickling out of cities and states are making increasingly clear the virus’s unequal toll on minorities. In New York City, data has shown that Covid-19 is killing Latino people at 1.6 times the rate that it is killing white people.
