ABSTRACT

Color of Coronavirus: COVID-19 Deaths by Race and Ethnicity in the U.S.   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "Our ongoing Color of Coronavirus project monitors how and where COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] mortality is inequitably impacting certain communities--to guide policy and community responses to these disproportionate deaths. The coronavirus has claimed more than 195,000 American lives through Sept. 15, 2020--about 24,000 more than our last update four weeks ago, averaging nearly 900 deaths per day. We know the race and ethnicity for 95% of the cumulative deaths in the United States. [...] The APM [American Public Media] Research Lab has independently compiled these death statistics. [...] The result is the most robust and up-to-date portrait of COVID-19 mortality by race available anywhere, with a lens on inequitable deaths. We have been tracking these deaths for more than five months now, revealing COVID-19's growing toll on all Americans, but with the heaviest losses among Black and Indigenous Americans."
