Here To Serve
CovClinic recognizes that these communities are the most vulnerable with the least amount of infrastructure to help them protect, detect, and recover from COVID-19. That is why we at CovClinic have dedicated resources specifically for these underserved communities.

"In communities where you have a high percentage of people living in poverty, in substandard housing, with inferior educational opportunities, and lacking access to proper nutrition and quality health care, you are likely to see more chronic diseases, such as asthma, hypertension, and diabetes. All of these conditions are risk factors for severe illness or death from COVID-19. Sadly, that’s what we’re seeing play out, now. Data from the CDC shows that certain minority groups, such as Blacks and Hispanics, bear more than their share of the burden of COVID-19 infection and severe illness, reflected in rates of hospitalizations and deaths." - Rutgers Global Health Institute
"The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated severe and pervasive health and social inequities in America. For instance, people of color experience systemic and structural racism in many facets of our society and are more likely to become sick and die from COVID-19. The lack of complete data, disaggregated by race and ethnicity, on COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and mortality rates, as well as underlying health and social vulnerabilities, has further hampered efforts to ensure an equitable pandemic response." - The White House
