The numbers are staggering as to the reported cases and deaths due to the coronavirus. There is a growing concern about the numbers of Black Americans disproportionately testing positive and dying from the disease.   The virus does not discriminate but the concern is the healthcare system does and blacks are vulnerable in the system as they fall through the cracks.
