Who is getting infected with COVID-19?
The distribution of confirmed COVID-19 cases reveals significant disparities within California’s overall racial and ethnic demographics, with Latino and Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander groups having a disproportionate share of cases relative to their share of the population. Additional disparities are evident in COVID-19 deaths, as seen here. California adults who are Black, Latino, or Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander have disproportionately more deaths for their share of the population. Structural racism, poverty and the increased likelihood of having underlying conditions, such as heart disease and asthma, are likely to contribute to this disparity. While male and female Californians have a similar rate of confirmed cases, males account for a greater percentage of total deaths.
Note: Percentages may not add up to 100% due to rounding. Ethnicity of deceased is available for a subset of the total number of deaths as reported by law enforcement. In percent of California population, Other appears as zero because it is not used in making population estimates.
