According to COVID-19 data by Race/Ethnicity from the MN Department of Health, COVID-19 is exposing pervasive and persistent racism in communities of color and indigenous communities, due to work in low-paying jobs that are now considered essential.  Communities of color and indigenous communities have substantially higher rates of health inequities, making them more susceptible to get infected and die from COVID-19. The virus magnified Minnesota’s racial wealth gap that has existed for decades.  Source: MN Department of Health
