The coronavirus pandemic has suddenly taken the world by storm and has temporarily changed every American’s way of life. A vaccine (and testing) is needed for us to get back to our normal way of life, although that could be a year away. But, when the vaccine finally arrives, will everyone be eager to take it?
What we have quickly learned is this virus does not discriminate in who falls victim to it, young, old, male, female, but in recent weeks African Americans have emerged as the group most likely to not survive once stricken with this disease according to a Reuters report. It is believed because African Americans have many underlying medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and asthma that has contributed to the extremely high death rates from this disease.
