Yehia, B.R., Winegar, A., Fogel, R. et al. (2020). Association of Race With Mortality Among Patients Hospitalized With Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at 92 US Hospitals. JAMA Network Open. 3(8):e2018039.
The authors conducted a cohort study of 11,210 adult patients hospitalized with confirmed severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) between February 19, 2020, and May 31, 2020, in 92 hospitals in 12 states to examine the effect of race on mortality. The authors concluded that “mortality for those able to access hospital care did not differ between Black and White patients after adjusting for sociodemographic factors and comorbidities.”
