Recent findings for Blacks, regardless of their age, is they have an 8 times higher propensity to die from Covid because of their sickle cell heredity traits?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Deep Dive by Teen in Data takes teen to new heights, reported a link to the possible reason why Blacks need to consider they have a higher risk of dying from Covid if they are not vaccinated.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb for Blacks to discern the data findings in this post and decide the risks of not becoming vaccinated even though they are young…

King Solomon

The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. (Proverb 27:12)

What’s My Point?

Most elder people were made aware of their higher risk of death because of their age and were given priority over the young to become vaccinated. If they were prudent and took advantage of the vaccinations to reduce the risk of death according to the proverb.

My point is Blacks need to be made aware of the recent data of a possible link between Blacks because of their inherited sickle cell traits.

In My Opinion

I googled a number of links and the data indicates all seems to verify the following data statement even though the vaccinations are now available for all ages.

“As observed in prior weeks, Black and Hispanic people have received smaller shares of vaccinations compared to their shares of cases and compared to their shares of the total population in most states.”

In my opinion, this data should be advertised immediately across the Nation by all major news media and accolades to the teen for his cold water for the thirsty who are prudent and act according to the data findings which King Solomon described in the following verse.

As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country. (Proverb 25:25)
