Chan, S.B., Smith-Garcia, J., and Collier, C. (2020). Racial Disparity and Covid-19 Outcomes: An Emergency Department Study. (Abstract only.) Annals of Emergency Medicine. 76(4): S16-S17.
The authors collected data on individuals tested for COVID-19 in three Emergency Departments that are all part of an emergency medicine residency program. They found that non-whites were more likely to test positive for COVID-19, require intubation, and die from COVID-19 compared with whites, regardless of co-morbidities.
