A recent study has uncovered a very interesting statistic regarding the coronavirus outbreak and those who contracted the virus.

Scientists have been studying trends and patterns to try and find out who is most likely to catch the virus and more than that, who is most likely to succumb to the virus and die from it.

We've seen a number of drugs being tested and some of them have showed some early success, but it's still too early to tell.

As for those who are contracting the virus, we know that the elderly and those with underlying conditions have an increased risk of having problems with the virus.

Some studies are showing that something so very simple could either lead to an increased risk or a decreased risk depending on what you do with it. That thing is Vitamin D.

If you have a deficiency in Vitamin D, you may be more likely to contract the virus. If you have enough, then your immune system should be boosted and you have a good chance of fighting off the illness.

Now one trend that has emerged is that the African-American population actually accounts for nearly 1/3 of all coronavirus deaths despite making up only 14% of the population.

As a clearer picture emerges of COVID-19's decidedly deadly toll on black Americans, leaders are demanding a reckoning of the systemic policies they say have made many African Americans far more vulnerable to the virus, including inequity in access to health care and economic opportunity.

A growing chorus of medical professionals, activists and political figures is pressuring the federal government to not just release comprehensive racial demographic data of the country´s coronavirus victims, but also to outline clear strategies to blunt the devastation on African Americans and other communities of color.

On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its first breakdown of COVID-19 case data by race, showing that 30% of patients whose race was known were black. The federal data was missing racial information for 75% of all cases, however, and did not include any demographic breakdown of deaths.

The latest Associated Press analysis of available state and local data shows that nearly one-third of those who have died are African American, with black people representing about 14% of the population in the areas covered in the analysis.

Romney's Impeachment Vote Comes Back To Bite Him After Trump Creates New Council

I don't think we're going to forget that back in February when it came time vote on the impeachment of President Trump, RINO Mitt Romney voted along with the corrupt Democrats to try and convict him of bogus unimpeachable charges.

Any good that Romney had accomplished as Senator of Utah was completely demolished after that vote. As it stands, I don't think he has any chance of winning another term as Senator.
