Survey finds over 80% of COVID-19 patients in Georgia hospitals are Black

Atlanta, May 4 (RHC)-- A new survey of Georgia hospitals finds more than 80% of COVID-19 patients are Black, even though African-Americans make up just 30% of Georgia’s population.  It’s the latest evidence that the coronavirus is disproportionately affecting people of color in the United States. 

Meanwhile, Native American tribal governments report they haven’t received any of the $8 billion in direct emergency payments promised by Congress in last month’s $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill.
