Why Covid-19 is common among lower-income people in US

Apr 29, 2020 15:58 IST

Researchers from Boston University have claimed that underlying conditions that increase the risk of severe illness or death from Covid-19 are much more common among the people of colour, Native American, and lower-income people in the US. The Covid-19 does not discriminate, but discrimination and inequality have shaped the risk of severe illness and death, according to the research team from Boston University School of Public Health. The study’s co-author Dr Julia Raifman said decades of structural inequities in education, employment, housing, stress, and other factors have shaped disparities in the burden of chronic diseases by race, ethnicity, and income.
