Black People In Kansas And Missouri Are More Likely To Die From COVID-19 Than White People
APM Research Lab looked at racial disparities among COVID-19 deaths and found the disparities in Kansas and Missouri to be some of the worst in the country.
The health inequities that contribute to disparities in COVID-19 outcomes have been here a lot longer than the new coronavirus. Researcher Andi Egbert says, "if we had equity in Kansas and Missouri, 260 black lives wouldn't be lost today from the virus."
