COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 3, 2020
Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.
Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.
State departments of Public Health are reporting the number of deaths BEFORE the medical examiners have even concluded the cause of death. It takes Medical examiners weeks to determine. There would be no legitimate way to report how many people die “daily”. https://t.co/JSm34WTrFD— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) April 4, 2020
More accurate estimates now say more than 40,000 died in China.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 4, 2020
Their cover-up placed the world in peril and led to tens of thousands of needless deaths.
Once this is over, a massive investigation should be launched and China should be forced to pay up for what they have done.

2. We won’t hit the iceberg
3. We barely touched the iceberg
4. Nobody could’ve seen the iceberg
5. These deaths mean my plan worked
6. I’m the best captain ever

Coronavirus deaths in the US: March 31, 812. April 1, 1049. April 2, 969. April 3, 1321. This is not “exponential growth.” This is not what the models predicted. If this keeps up, the death rate has leveled out and that’s very good news https://t.co/dCD1e0rCgz— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) April 4, 2020

Michigan has just started reporting on coronavirus cases by race.— Mark D. Levine (@MarkLevineNYC) April 3, 2020
African Americans are 14% of that state's population but 40% of deaths.
This pandemic is reflecting--and exacerbating--inequality.
NYC should publish this data as well, so we get the picture here. pic.twitter.com/u0UeWZfJvA
NYC just passed 60,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and has over 2200 deaths. https://t.co/80ffIAspry— We need #TestAndTrace 🐇 (@Noahpinion) April 5, 2020
