A new study shows that Black and Hispanic Americans are the most likely to contract COVID-19.
And Asian Americans are at highest risk for ICU admission.
This was based on a US meta-analysis and systematic review of data on 4.3 million patients.
The study was designed to uncover the link between socioeconomic determinants of health and racial disparities in COVID-19 outcomes.
