Hispanic Community Hit Hard By Coronavirus

Hispanics make up about 40-percent of the state’s population, but they account for nearly half of all deaths linked to COVID-19. Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia says Texas should be doing outreach to Hispanic communities in Spanish, and sending masks. She says the reason that Latinos make up a large portion of coronavirus deaths is that they work on the front lines in places like restaurants, which the state re-started the quickest. Also, health conditions like diabetes run rampant in the Hispanic community.
