Health Disparities

  • On this West Virginia Morning, health disparities between white communities and Black and Latino communities have existed for years. But the coronavirus has made it even more obvious. Also, in this show, we have the latest statehouse news and an update on West Virginia baseball.
  • COVID-19 exposes an "us and them" divide in healthcare. The coronavirus is about three times more likely to put African-American and Latino people in the hospital and they are twice as likely than whites to die from COVID. For this episode, Us & Them host Trey Kay speaks with Black West Virginians fighting to keep their community healthy during the pandemic.
