Historically redlined communities at higher risk of COVID-19 morbidity

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) finds that neighborhoods that have been historically redlined also have higher rates of preexisting chronic conditions that increase the risk of COVID-19 morbidity. Redlining was a discriminatory practice that restricted financial and other institutions from investing in certain neighborhoods largely based on their racial makeup. Historic redlining led to decades of disinvestment in these communities, and the impacts of this systematic racism on current health outcomes is clear. #covid-19 #racialequity
