The CDC report highlights a disturbing trend throughout the country.
The narrative coming out of the state of Georgia is disturbing. As Governor Brian Kemp relaxes restrictions on businesses, researchers are finding that the toll the coronavirus is taking on the Black community is even more troubling than previously stated.
