Data Collection and Reporting

The article presents data on the racial and ethnic distribution of COVID-19-confirmed cases and fatalities in Connecticut. The authors call for a National Commission on COVID-19 Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities to further explore and respond to the unique challenges that the crisis presents for Black and brown communities. The authors offer a request for data: data and trends on numbers from racial and ethnic groups affected by COVID-19 must be provided by the state and national health departments.
