Dr. Fauci on why the coronavirus is wreaking havoc on Black communities
Black, Indigenous and Latinx communities have been hit hardest by the more likely to die from COVID-19 compared to their White counterparts. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease doctor, sat down with BET to speak about why minority communities have such a high number of infections, hospitalizations and death rates and what can be done to fix the disparity.

Dr. Fauci: It’s what I call a double whammy against the minority, but particularly the African American and Latinx community. You don’t like to generalize, but as a demographic group, the African American community is more likely to be in a job that does not allow them to stay at home and do teleworking most of the time, they’re in essential jobs. I mean, obviously, there are a lot of African Americans who are not, that could just as easily do that.
