Frontline Lives Lost

People of color continue to bear a disproportionate burden of the ~3,400 US health care worker deaths since the pandemic began, according to an ongoing Guardian project.
 
Key findings: 

  • 2 in 3 health care workers who died by February 10 identified as people of color. 

  • More than half were younger than 60 (the median age of death in the general public is 78 years).

  • Many of the cases involved concerns over inadequate PPE.

  • Nurses and support staff account for most deaths.
