COVID-19 coronavirus resources

African Americans make up about 41% of the city’s population

 

DEATH DEMOGRAPHICS BY RACIAL IDENTITY

Characteristics of Philadelphia Deaths with COVID-19

Total COVID-19 Deaths = 342 - African Americans 169 (52.2%)

According to the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium

African Americans are being diagnosed at a disproportionately higher rate than other groups and are dying from coronavirus at a higher rate than other groups.

Some politicians and pundits place the blame for high black mortality rates on the shoulders of black folks, claiming we’re not adequately embracing social distancing, or else vulnerable because of our health habits. Perhaps that’s part of it.

In reality, the story of black folks and the coronavirus started hundreds of years ago with systemic racism, medical bias, and lack of access to health care. That story continues in a system where testing for the coronavirus is limited. The rules skew toward those with more resources, fewer preexisting conditions, and ready access to primary care physicians.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
