The United States Surgeon General has said that many black Americans are at a higher risk for COVID-19 than the rest of the population.

Major cities with large African-American communities including New York, Chicago and New Orleans, are hotspots for the virus.

Another city, Detroit – already rife with social and economic inequalities – has America’s third-highest number of infections.
