The media will not talk about the rates of infection, hospitalization and deaths of nonwhites compared to white people. Why is this?
It appears the media is anti-white, because of white supremacy bias, all but ignores the facts that white (Caucasian) people are better equipped to deal this the Covid pandemic than nonwhites. Whites are healthier, wealthier, have access to better healthcare resources and are more educated than nonwhites, with the notable exception of Asians.
According to the Center for Disease Control:
Race and ethnicity are risk markers for other underlying conditions that affect health including socioeconomic status, access to health care, and exposure to the virus related to occupation, e.g., frontline, essential, and critical infrastructure workers.
|Rate ratios compared to White, Non-Hispanic persons||American Indian or Alaska Native, Non-Hispanic persons||Asian, Non-Hispanic persons||Black or African American, Non-Hispanic persons||Hispanic or Latino persons|
1 Data Source: Data reported by state and territorial jurisdictions (accessed 03/10/2021). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2019 US intercensal population estimate. Calculations use only the 53% of case reports that have race and ethnicity data available; this can result in inaccurate estimates of the relative risk among groups.
2 Data source: COVID-NET (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/covid-net/purpose-methods.html, accessed March 1, 2020, through February 27, 2021). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2019 US standard COVID-NET catchment population.
3 Data source: NCHS provisional death counts (https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Deaths-involving-coronavirus-disease-2019-COVID-19/ks3g-spdg, data through March 6, 2021). Numbers are ratios of age-adjusted rates standardized to the 2019 US intercensal population estimate.
Whites are better equipped to deal with the Covid pandemic, according to the CDC.
