COVID-19: THE AFRICAN AMERICAN IMPACT


STOCKTON CHAPTER OF NAACP TOUCHES ON MANY FACTORS OF COVID-19

On Saturday, the Stockton Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People shared information from numerous sectors about the impact the coronavirus is having on communities of color.

Among the presenters in the teleconference hosted by NAACP Stockton chapter President Bobby Bivens was San Joaquin County Public Health Officer Dr. Maggie Park, who said data shows a disproportionate burden of illness and death among racial and ethnic minority groups as result of the coronavirus, or COVID-19. Statewide, the percentages of cases and deaths among the African-American population is more disproportionate than in San Joaquin County, though that might be a result of fewer tests being administered in this area than elsewhere.

The Los Angeles Times reported Saturday that black and Latino Californians ages 18 to 64 are dying more frequently from COVID-19 than their white and Asian counterparts relative to their share of the population.
