COVID-19-related morbidity and mortality have disproportionately affected communities of colour across the United States. Originally dubbed the ‘great equalizer’, many individuals believed that COVID-19 affected everyone equally (Gupta, 2020). However, COVID-19 has exposed ethnic and racial differences in morbidity and mortality (Yaya et al, 2020). Early data showed that African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans were more likely to grow ill and die from COVID-19 than White Americans (Bassett et al, 2020). As data continues to emerge, it is evident that communities of colour bear a disproportionate burden of COVID-19.
