WAPO: Ohio State senator Steve Huffman — who is, of course a Republican, but also OMG a doctor — had this to say about why the coronavirus affects people of color disproportionately:
I understand African Americans have a higher incidence of chronic conditions and that makes them more susceptible to death from COVID. But why does it not make them more susceptible to just get COVID? Could it just be that African Americans or the colored population do not wash their hands as well as other groups? Or wear a mask? Or do not socially distance themselves? Could that be the explanation for why the higher incidence?
Wow. Black people are dirty, guys.
Angela Dawson, executive director of the Ohio Commission on Minority Health — and a black woman — kept it professional, but pushed back immediately, asserting:
That is not the opinion of leading medical experts in this country ... Do all populations need to wash their hands? Absolutely, sir, but that is not where you are going to find the variance and the rationale for why these populations are more vulnerable.
