Along with that sweet moment, Dr. Fauci used his time on Will’s platform to talk about COVID-19 facts, including how the pandemic is impacting the black community.
“It’s really terrible, because it’s just one of the failings of our society, is that African Americans have a disproportionate prevalence in incidents of the very comorbid conditions that put you at a high risk,” the health expert shared.
“If you get infected, you’re going to have a poor outcome,” he added.
Dr. Fauci also noted that the COVID-19 outbreak is highlighting the problems within the healthcare world. “When it’s all over, is to focus a bright shining light on what disparities of health mean,” he said.
Earlier this week, Beyoncé also touched on the same subject during her surprise appearance on the One World: Together at Home concert special.
“African-American communities at large have been severely affected in this crisis. Those with pre-existing conditions are at higher risk,” she shared. “This virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate in America.”
“In a recent report from my home city of Houston, Texas, it showed that COVID-19 deaths within Houston city limits 57 percent of fatal cases are African-Americans,” she continued. “Please protect yourselves. We are one family and we need you. We need your voices, your abilities and your strength all over this world.”
Before signing off, she left her fans with one inspiring message.
“I know it’s very hard, but please be patient, stay encouraged, keep the faith, stay positive and continue to pray for our heroes,” she said. “Good night and God bless you.”
