The racial composition of the first public cases in Michigan, the highest proportion of confirmed cases and deaths among blacks.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia novel coronavirus pneumonia is diagnosed as a new crown pneumonia in 18 countries and regions in the world, and 970 thousand cases outside China, there are 1056159 cases of new crown pneumonia and 57206 deaths worldwide, according to real-time statistics from the World Health Organization as at April 4th at 0 o’clock in Central European time (Beijing time April 5th, April 5th).
The novel coronavirus pneumonia novel coronavirus pneumonia data released by Johns Hopkins University in the US at 13:53 on April 4th, the new US crown pneumonia confirmed a breakthrough of 300 thousand. Novel coronavirus pneumonia was diagnosed in 300915 cases, 8162 cases died and 14459 cases were cured.
The United States federal government sent masks, gloves, respirators and other necessary anti epidemic equipment from its medical reserves to the States and cities in need, but some local governments were shocked when they received the materials: they were not available.
Nearly 6000 medical masks sent to Alabama are partially vulnerable to rupture and expired as early as 2010, the report said. The 150 ventilators that Los Angeles received were broken and needed to be repaired before they could be used. The masks received in Oregon also have elastic skin problems, which can lead to band breakage, leaving health care workers at risk of exposure to the virus.
Charles Boyle, a spokesman for Oregon governor Kate brown, said: “the national strategic reserve has passed the validity period of several shipments to us. Although we are told that expired equipment can still be used to fight the new crown epidemic, they are not suitable for use in surgery.”
He said that many of the materials received were purchased during the H1N1 epidemic more than a decade ago, and the mask with insufficient elasticity was one of the products previously recalled by the Centers for disease prevention and control of the United States. As a result, Oregon staff did not distribute the problematic masks to medical staff.
The shortage of protective materials has endangered doctors, nurses and other front-line medical personnel. With the outbreak of the new crown, more and more states are in short supply of ventilators. Many governors complain that they have been slow to get medical supplies from the national strategic reserve, or that they have received far less. And when states receive problematic supplies that cannot be used, their frustration increases.
Don Williamson, President of the Alabama Hospital Association, said he had received multiple emails from major hospitals about the lack of elasticity of the rubber band of N95 masks sent from the strategic reserve, and the masks could not be used unless the rubber band of the masks was replaced.
Racial composition of the first public cases in Michigan, the highest proportion of confirmed cases and deaths among blacks
Novel coronavirus pneumonia accounts for 35% of the total cases in Michigan, accounting for 40% of deaths, but only 12% of Michigan’s population is black.
According to the Detroit Metropolitan Daily on April 2, the number of black people infected with the new coronavirus who died was “alarming”. Blacks make up only 12% of Michigan’s population, but the proportion of people infected with the new coronavirus is much higher than whites and other races.
In novel coronavirus pneumonia deaths in the state, 40% of the 417 cases of Black Death accounted for 26%, while half of the mixed race or other races accounted for 4%, while the remaining 30% were unknown, according to data released by the Michigan State Department of health and public services on 2.
In novel coronavirus pneumonia, nearly 35% of the 11000 confirmed cases were black, 25% were white, 6% were other races, and the remaining 34% were unknown.
This is the first novel coronavirus pneumonia patient in Michigan has published, which has revealed the problem of blacks’ epidemic.
“Novel coronavirus pneumonia is undoubtedly more influential on the periphery and in the poorer communities, especially in the colored communities,” said Jonny Carlton, chief medical officer of Michigan, Joneigh Khaldun. Historically, African Americans in the United States, regardless of race or class, are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. We know that novel coronavirus pneumonia patients are more likely to develop these diseases.
Decades of economic inequality and systematic racism in Michigan have impoverished many black people, the Detroit Metropolitan reported. Studies have shown that the infection rate and mortality rate are higher in urban areas where the poor are concentrated. Many low-income people have to use public transport and live in large apartment buildings without paid sick leave. Service industry workers are often unable to work remotely and are in close contact with the public.
