For example, Johns Hopkins University of Medicine reports that while Black Americans represent only about 13% of the population in the states reporting racial/ethnic information of people who have died of COVID-19, they account for about 34% of total COVID-19 deaths in those states. During this event, a panel moderated by Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford, Clinical Professor at NYU
