According to a Centers for Disease Control report, nearly three times as many minority children have died from coronavirus in the U.S. compared to white children.
The report showed that kids below age 21 were less likely to die from COVID-19.
According to the data from 121 children who died from coronavirus between Feb. 12 and July 31, 2020, at least 45% were Hispanic, 29% were Black and 4% were American Indians.
Additionally, 75% of the children had at least one underlying medical condition, such as asthma or obesity. But only 30% of the kids who died were 9 years old or younger.
And non-white adults have also died from COVID-19 at much higher rates than their white peers.
The Department of Health and Human Services adviser Paul Alexander wrote that nearly half of the dead children were between the ages of 18 and 20.
As information, nearly 200,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, the most of any country in the world.
