This week, the U.S. joined nations around the world in instituting sweeping emergency measures to further combat the corona-virus pandemic. In an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, schools and universities are shut down, and concerts and convention centers across the globe have been closed and cancelled. And now public health advocates are saying African Americans are at a greater risk of death from corona virus.
For a whole host of economic, political and historical reasons, Georges C. Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, says it’s a threat that African Americans need to take particularly seriously.
Join us at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” here on Blog Talk Radio as we ask the question: “How did Black People become the face of CoVid-19?” Our host will address suggestions to combat these statistics at any rate.
