    Sounds like some of the same questions AOC would ask.

    That was great! Almost indistinguishable from the fake news media, that's how bad they are.

    Think she missed why this is happening. There must be a racial reason why President Trump and Republicans aren't doing anything about this Chinese Virus. (heavy sarcasm used above, but I am surprised this hasn't made bigger headlines yet)

    Black People Are Disproportionately Getting and Dying From COVID-19
    Early data indicates African Americans are bearing the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.

    AS THE coronavirus swept from China and eventually to the U.S., experts who study the fault lines along race and health care sounded an urgent alarm: The highly contagious, potentially fatal virus could ravage African American communities.


    Their fears appear to be coming to fruition, as early data from multiple jurisdictions shows blacks accounting for disproportionate and, in some cases, shockingly high shares of coronavirus cases or deaths.

    In both Louisiana and Chicago, for example, recent statistics showed that roughly 70% of COVID-19 deaths occurred among blacks, even though they are a minority in both areas.

    I love Allie Beth Stuckey. This isn't the first of these she's done. One had her interviewee in the frame giving answers.That was great, too. She really does a good job with these videos.

    President Trump should move those briefings back to the helicopter pad.

    In North Carolina's Mecklenburg County – home of Charlotte, the state's largest city – black people make up 32.9% of residents, but accounted for 43.7% of reported coronavirus cases as of April 4. In Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, blacks make up about 27% percent of the population but comprised almost half of all COVID-19 infections – and, as of data early Tuesday afternoon, 71% of all fatalities

    Next door in Michigan, state health officials report that 33% of COVID-19 cases have occurred among blacks or African Americans – 10 percentage points higher than whites, and more than twice the state's percentage of black residents. Blacks or African Americans also accounted for 41% of deaths, compared with 28% among whites and 26% of cases for which race wasn't known.

    Im guessing because they are packed tightly into the inner city

    I heard from very reliable sources, it's because they won't stay home inside, and they continue to congregate in groups.

    The politicians threaten them with police action, but the police want nothing to do with enforcing stay at home orders.

    I saw somewhere that blacks have a higher rate of comorbidities making them tastier for this virus.
