Cases of COVID-19 and deaths from COVID-19 differ by race and ethnicity in North Carolina. These disparities in COVID-19 cases and deaths exist for many reasons, including disparities in access to healthcare, occupational exposure to COVID-19, and underlying health conditions that increase the chance of severe complications from COVID-19. These charts show the cumulative proportion of people in each race or ethnic group with confirmed COVID-19 and who died from COVID-19 in North Carolina and select counties. All data are preliminary and are subject to change. The most current is available on the NC DHHS COVID-19 dashboard.
