Understanding the social determinants of health and genetic factors contributing to the differences observed in COVID-19 incidence and mortality between underrepresented and other communities
J Natl Med Assoc. 2022 May 2:S0027-9684(22)00071-2. doi: 10.1016/j.jnma.2022.04.002. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCOVID-19 has been a devastating disease, especially in underserved communities. Data has shown that Indigenous peoples, Latinx communities, and Black Americans have a 3.3, 2.4, and 2 times higher mortality rate than White communities, respectively, due to COVID-19. Therefore, in this paper, we sought to understand how Social Determinants of Health and genetic factors influence COVID-19 incidence, mortality rates, and complications by assessing existing literature. Studies showed that identifying with a racial/...
