It has been reported in areas across the country and recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General that African American and Hispanic/Latinx communities have been hit especially hard by COVID-19. And South Carolina is no different. While recent census data reports that the African American population makes up just 27% of our state and 41% of confirmed cases, 56% of South Carolina's deaths from COVID-19 have been African American. This statistic speaks specifically to the health status that often persists in marginalized racial and ethnic minority communities and serves as a stark reminder of the health inequities that we must work together to address.
