#2 To answer my own question: Efforts to examine SARS-CoV-2 transmission and COVID-19-associated deaths among different racial and ethnic groups “could lead to targeted, community-level, mortality prevention initiatives,” CDC researchers wrote.
“These campaigns could encourage social distancing and the need for wearing cloth face coverings in public settings,” they wrote.
But the summary posted overlooks some interesting conclusions: The CDC analysis also showed that, as of May 18, approximately 60 percent of those who died from COVID-19 in the United States were male.
More than 75 percent of those who died have had at least one underlying medical condition, including 83 percent of those age 65 or younger, the CDC said.
Heart disease was the most common underlying health condition among COVID-19 deaths, at 61 percent, followed by diabetes at 40 percent, chronic kidney disease at 21 percent, and chronic lung disease at 19 percent, the agency said.

#5 At least in Texas an anomalously large fraction of hospitalization and deaths are in a few large cities and the Mexican border counties. One wonders if Mexico’s sickest are coming here for care.
