Democrats demand data on racial disparities in America’s coronavirus response
Five Democrats in Congress are demanding data from the federal government about racial disparities in the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The lawmakers said in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar that the government is “currently failing to collect and publicly report on the racial and ethnic demographic information” for COVID-19 tests and patients.
The letter detailed several ways that minority communities could be hit harder by the pandemic, as well as the medical shortages and economic disruptions it has created. Black and Hispanic adults are statistically more likely to suffer from ailments like obesity, diabetes and asthma, the lawmakers say. Additionally, immigrants and people of color are also less likely to have health insurance.

It's simply a push for funding......money....that green stuff.
And I second the statement of "Vote Biden".......he may embrace that Corona and make it forget things too.
