New Study:COVID Raised Economic Inequality; US, Latin America Are Most Affected by COVID

 Amnesty International said today (April 7, 2021) that COVID-19 has increased social and economic inequality in the U.S. and several Latin American countries, the UPI website reports. 

The 400-page analysis says North, South, and Central America have been worst hit by the crisis, with about 55 million cases and 1.3 million  deaths to date. 

The U.S., Brazil, and Mexico have the world's highest COVID death tolls. 

The study shows that women, refugees, migrants, underprotected health workers, indigenous, and Black people and other groups have borne the brunt of the pandemic.
