Minorities in the United States are deeply affected by the pandemic.
According to the U.S. media on the 30th, the proportion of minorities vaccinated against the novel coronavirus in the United States is significantly low.
Even at a coronavirus vaccination site in a Hispanic community in New York, a large number of white people came to get vaccinated from other places, far exceeding the number of Hispanic residents living in the community.
More white people are vaccinated in the Hispanic community
According to CNN on the 30th, about 72% of the residents of the Hispanic community in New York are Hispanic, which is seriously affected by the pandemic.
On the 14th of this month, a coronavirus vaccination site was launched in the community, where more than 25,000 people have been vaccinated. But unlike the original idea, most of the people who came here for vaccination were white people living in other areas.
Susanna Behar, a staff member of the vaccination site, revealed that 2,400 people were vaccinated on the site on the 23rd, but most of them were not Hispanics from the community, and she also said that she had never seen so many white people in the community before. In response, New York City Councilman Mark Levine said that vaccination reservations at the vaccination site were disadvantageous to many Latinos with limited English proficiency, who did not or were not good at using related electronic devices.
Vaccination racial disparity is a national problem in the United States
The report said that the racial difference in this coronavirus vaccination is a national problem in the United States.
Relevant data analysis in 14 states shows that the average vaccination rate of whites is more than twice that of African and Hispanics, on average, more than 4% of whites have been vaccinated, and only about 1.9% of Africans and 1.8% of Hispanics have been vaccinated.
The refrigerator broke down, and the coronavirus vaccine was almost wasted.
Since the launch of vaccination in the United States, various problems have been emerging in the distribution and vaccination process, including insufficient supply and confusion in vaccination.
Recently, in Seattle, the United States, due to the failure of the refrigerator for storing vaccines, some vaccines are at risk of being quickly expired and will be wasted.
However, the vaccine was eventually distributed to several vaccination sites and emergency vaccination was carried out.
