Washington Post: In this Maryland suburb, 74 percent of new covid-19 patients are Hispanic. “Recent data shows that Montgomery County’s 200,000 Hispanic residents account for more than two-thirds of new infections, even though they are just a fifth of the county’s population. Advocates blame the disparity partly on government failures to provide easy access to testing and medical care in underserved Latino communities, where residents are more likely to face job and living conditions that make it harder to avoid the virus.”
