COVID-19 Has Killed More People in Two Years than HIV/AIDS Since in the 1980’s

Posted on

COVID-19 has killed approximately 750,000 Americans over the last two years, officially surpassing the 700,000 number of lives lost to HIV/AIDS over the last four decades to become the country's deadliest pandemic. Despite their differing rates of transmission and mortality, the negative outcomes of both COVID-19 and HIV/AIDS have been disproportionately borne by minority communities. Black and Latinx individuals still account for large percentages of new HIV infections while representing small portions of the total population. Similarly, CDC data shows that Black, Latinx, Asian, and Native Americans are at higher risk for COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and death.
