The Center for Economic Development has done a short report on Milwaukee’s racial coronavirus divide that may be of interest.

 

Examining deaths and confirmed cases through April 8, this study finds that stark inequalities are emerging along racial and economic lines. Areas of the county that are predominantly African American are experiencing disproportionately high numbers of reported cases and concentrations of coronavirus clusters, while areas that are predominantly white and higher income are reporting fewer cases and very small numbers of virus clusters. Most important, African Americans who have contracted the virus are developing life-threatening complications at a rate much higher than whites.
