Blacks More Likely Than Others to Know COVID-19 Victims: Poll

African Americans are disproportionately more likely to say a family member or close friend died of the coronavirus or respiratory disease since March as compared to other Americans, a recent poll found.

The poll, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago for the Data Foundation and consisting of three COVID-19 impact surveys between April and June, found that 11 percent of Blacks say they had a close personal association with a coronavirus victim as opposed to five percent for all Americans and four percent of whites, The Associated Press reported.

The United States has more than 2.1 million confirmed coronavirus cases since the outbreak began earlier this year, including nearly 116,000 deaths.
