African Americans have higher rates of Covid-19 infection in US

Apr 08, 2020 15:18 IST

US President Donald Trump has said evidence shows African Americans having higher rates of Covid-19 infection in the United States. On Tuesday, Trump said his administration is actively engaging on the problem of increased impacts on the African American community, and doing everything to address this challenge. Calling the trend disproportional, Trump told a White House press briefing that he is very concerned about the terrible numbers of infected African Americans. Experts believe higher rates of pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and asthma within black and minority communities may contribute to the phenomenon.
