The Increase In The Death Rates Of The Hispanic Community Is Due To Their Workplace
As per the reports, the total percent of affected Hispanic cases in the United States of America is 29.4% of the total population, which is the second-highest compared with the white non-Hispanic individuals around 49.9% of the total population. And the third highest stands for Black non-Hispanic communities with a percentage of 11% total of the United States of America.
As per the 2020 reports, the total population reported about 19% of the United States of America’s population, but the covid-19 deaths report about 41% as per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. As per the analysis of the federal government, a higher percentage of the working-age group of 30-69 are more likely to die because of covid-19. It also states that the age group between 35-44 and 55-64 are more likely to get affected and cause death because of covid-19 and the percentage is around 15.4% and 8%.
The studies also show that a similar pattern of unequally affected covid-19 among the Hispanic individuals. Higher rates of working Hispanic individuals get affected because of continuous exposure to the virus as per the reports published in the journal Demographic Research.
As per the news reported at the University of Ohio, the majority of front-line workers and essential workers have overrepresented covid-19 and is an occupational disease that spreads at work. Hispanic are the front-line workers. As per the administration at the University at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, since the data is available regarding the highest number of cases are at the workplace of the working individuals’ proper precautions and protection have to be taken at the workplace.
According to the data collected from the Covid-19 Racial and Ethical disparities, the minority communities have a higher risk of death due to coronavirus disease because of disparities in hospitalization, treatments, and racial discrimination in health care facilities.
There is also evidence saying that these Hispanic communities, along with other minority communities, took a major hit from the covid-19 disease because these people put themselves in line and they were doing their jobs, the professor of the Sociology department at the University of Ohio reported.
Because of all the discrimination towards Black Americans, Hispanics, and other minority communities in the United States of America, the recovery from the coronavirus of this community is complicated, and hence there is no choice left for them rather than death.
It is not a proper reason to let the Hispanic community or any other community die. Still, the United States of America has to work on improving the conditions of these people. Be it health care facility, education, working environment, income, wealth gaps, general health status, and social status of these minor and Hispanic communities.
As per the reports reported at HealthDay, the major reason for the increase in the death rate of the Hispanic community is the workplace exposure to the new coronavirus. Thus it is the responsibility of the United Nations of America to take care of its people even though they come from different communities
