Black and Latino people account for nearly 43 percent of COVID-19 deaths, CDC says

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Friday provides further evidence that COVID-19 is disproportionately killing Black and Latino people, as well as other people of color. The paper, published in the CDC’s Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report, is a follow-up to an earlier report analyzing COVID-19 deaths from Feb. 12 to May 18, which found major racial disparities among the lives lost to COVID-19.
