Novel coronavirus pneumonia accounts for 30% of the population in Chicago, but 72% of the new crown pneumonia deaths in the city, according to CNN. In Louisiana, Illinois, New Jersey and Michigan, a similar situation has emerged. This means that the death rate of infected African Americans is several times higher than that of white people.

Generally speaking, African Americans are poorer, have a higher proportion of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, live in more densely populated areas, work for a large number of people, travel more by public transport, and face greater risk of infection.
