Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report shows that the rate of hospitalization for Coronavirus African Americans, Latinos, Hispanics, and Native Americans is nearly four times that of whites.

According to a report from the “Capitol Hill” on the 17th, the US CDC said that during the period from March 1 to November 7 this year, 67,259 of the over 70,000 hospitalized cases of Coronavirus reported to the agency were ethnic minorities.┬áResearch analysis shows that when looking at “age-adjusted hospitalization rates for various races and ethnicities,” the hospitalization rate for Hispanics or Latinos is approximately 4.2 times that of non-Hispanic or non-Latino whites.

A study published earlier this month found that African Americans and Asians in the United States and the United Kingdom are at higher risk of contracting the Coronavirus than whites, and African Americans are twice as likely to die from Coronavirus as whites.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of 15:25 on the 17th Eastern time (4:25 on November 18th, Beijing time), the United States has newly confirmed more than 140,000 Coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours.
