COVID-19 has a disproportionate toll on US income communities of color have, for a new open letter in JAMA published research network. Poverty is one of the clearest consequences of structural racism, and one of the easiest connection to health inequalities. You can track things like fresh food, insurance and quality of health care for many families and lignite an unbroken line of racist real estate and employment policy on the fight. These problems always have a direct impact on health, but especially during a pandemic. However, the new study shows that structural racism affects health in ways that go beyond poverty. “Income is a phenomenon that is important,” says senior author Andrea Troxel, director of the Department of Biostatistics at the New York University School of Medicine Grossman, “but there are many others.” Troxel Charter drew on publicly available data from the counties about 10 of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. The researchers sorted the first counties in those with relatively high and low poverty rates. The median income for high poverty counties was about $60,000, compared with about $80,000 for the low poverty counties. Next, the researchers examined the racial composition of each community, along with the local presence of COVID-19 infection and death at 10. You can live as people were found in the essentially non-white communities significantly more likely contract and die new coronavirus, no matter how rich their community. COVID-19 death rates were lower by about nine times higher in low-income, communities predominantly non-white, against a profit, to know the towns, according to the study. Even in the most affluent areas of the crown mortality it was almost three times higher when the county were predominantly non-white, in comparison with a strong white. Unequal “very pronounced in the neighborhood with the highest levels of poverty, but it is definitely the lowest poverty neighborhood as well,” said Troxel. “This was a bit ‘a surprise to us.” Troxel team does not have access to data at the household level so that the paper is not granular factors such as might consider how much money to be made, a family of people, how many people in a particular house lived or how easily a family could provide cures medical. For this reason, he says, it is impossible to say exactly what’s behind the disparity, the research team noted. But this is not the first time, research has shown that the race-based health disparities also exist in higher income brackets. A 2017 document examined the health of at least $175,000 per year. Even in this rich group, the researchers found that blacks Americans experienced worse outcomes than their white counterparts in six of 16 categories, including prevalence of diabetes, high blood pressure and physical inactivity. Hispanic Americans have been disadvantaged in three categories, including obesity rates. “Blacks and other minorities Although people with high income, non-discriminatory treatment able to escape,” the study authors wrote in 2017. This could have a direct impact on the well-being has, since studies have It is shown that stress and trauma can present a higher risk of physical health problems and mental discrimination black people. When it comes to COVID-19, the type of work also keeps someone’s business, probably as much if not more of their salary. Someone with an office job to work from home off to lent a lower probability of exposure of workers as an essential and physically for every day mandatory reporting.

Troxel says his research tentatively hopes, but health inequalities address legislators will promote political, and examine the nuance it deserves. “It is not a matter of biology or some kind of innate predisposition [the disease],” he says, “but [as] racism of the structures and the story has developed in our society, to the extent a matter of going away of Copyright by Corbis via Getty Images income in 2020 Ira L.
