Health Officials Silent About the Bigger Impact Swine Flu Has on Blacks and Hispanics

- By Bossip Staff

In the past few months, city and federal health officials have been silent about the higher cases of Swine Flu outbreaks amongst Blacks and Hispanics.The report of H1N1 related deaths, showed that half of the H1N1 children’s deaths between April and August were among African-Americans and Hispanics. The amount of deaths were more than the percentage of both groups within the population. As great as the number is for the Swine Flu within minority children, the Center for Disease Control has yet to release a report stating the high risk the H1N1 could have amongst minorities as opposed to Caucasian children.

With such a broad trend approaching, the CDC will be forced to release some type of report so that minority children, especially Hispanics and Blacks will go get vaccines for the virus.
