A coronavirus testing project in San Francisco has provided yet another example of how COVID-19 is overwhelmingly affecting people of color.
Diane Havlir, the director of the HIV/AIDS division at the University of California, San Francisco, noticed early in the pandemic that young Latino men were arriving at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital with coronavirus symptoms more often than any other demographic. So she conducted a research project that involved testing 4,160 residents of San Francisco's Mission District and found that not a single white person tested positive, Stat News reports.
Havlir's project focused on a single, 16-square-block census tract in the Mission district, "one of the city's most densely populated and heavily Latinx neighborhoods," Stat News writes. A third of the tract's residents are white, while 58 percent are Hispanic, the U.S. Census estimates. But 95 percent of those who tested positive were Latinx, while no white person in the tract tested positive.
Just like testing and death rates are revealing across the country, "what really comes out of these data is that low-wage essential workers are victims of this disease," Havlir told Stat News. And with 53 percent of those who tested positive showing no symptoms of coronavirus, it's even more clear that allowing workers to stay home only if they feel sick may not be enough to stop the spread.

Even viruses are racist!!!!
Whatta ‘bout the White Hispanics?
I hope they treated them for being Latinx also. Sounds worse than the corona.
So now the China Plague is...Racist too?

It is is statistically improbable.
I saw some idiot on tv a few nights ago babbling about how the KungFLu hits the black community harder. So yes, it is clearly a racist disease. And somehow Trumps fault.

And what were the people of color doing these past five months and were their actions different from white people?
C’mon Yahoo. Even you guys should know that compassionate White lefties don’t live in close proximity to people of color.
RE: And what were the people of color doing these past five months and were their actions different from white people?
* Living in close proximity to one another
* Taking public transportation more often than Whites
* Blacks have on average, more pre-existing conditions that Whites.
Looks like the CV2 is IQ selective.
That could just be a function of where they hang out, go to church and shop. It came into one racial community and just never made the leap to the other.
Vitamin D levels are very strongly correlated with how bad a case you get. And blacks have lower vitamin D levels than whites with Hispanics in the middle. That could be playing a role.
Another possibility is that China designed the virus to be racist. But why Latinos? Doesn’t make sense. Blacks could be a target given China’s desires towards Africa and African resources. But I think a racial conspiracy is pretty far fetched. Not buying it.
That does not surprise me.
Maybe because the white practice social distancing, could afford to stay home, etc.
looks like it is IQ related.
