There is still much work to do to slow the spread of COVID-19 and eventually roll out a vaccine, but Dr. Debra Furr-Holden believes this one crucial step in eliminating the disparity in Flint means there is hope. African Americans are 60-percent of the population in Flint, in March they accounted for more than 85-percent of positive COVID-19 cases and 91-percent of the COVID-19 deaths. "We’ve made transformative strides also in eliminating racial disparities," Furr-Holden said.
