COVID-19 Severity and Mortality Among Ethnic Minorities with Comorbidities
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a time of uncertainty for many individuals around the world. Evidently, the necessity for research during this time is essential for understanding the virus and its impact on populations. Our research focuses on the impact of pre-existing comorbidities on COVID-19 severity and mortality among ethnic minorities globally. Often, ethnic minorities are affected disproportionally by diseases due to their environment, socioeconomic status, and underlying health conditions. As a result, the purpose of our research is to identify the comorbidities and socio-demographic factors that worsen COVID-19 severity and mortality among these populations. Identifying these factors will allow us to understand the conditions and inequities that worsen health disparities. Our current research aims to create a systematic or scoping review that can be used to guide further research and policy decisions about health inequity. Future plans include studying the long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in ethnic minorities.
