Huge increases in the number of COVID-19 cases in Latinx communities

Since the end of April, the number of new coronavirus cases in counties with high shares of Latinx residents have been increasing, with a particularly sharp spike in June. Despite proactive stay-at-home orders, in California, Latinx residents account for about 57 percent of new cases. Nationally, Latinx folks account for about 34 percent of cases, despite representing only 18 percent of the general U.S. population. #covid-19 #racialequity
