Fauci told the graduates that many members of minority groups work in essential jobs where they might be infected with the coronavirus. He also said that they have a higher risk to get infected in case of contact due to such diseases as hypertension, chronic lung disease, diabetes, or obesity.

“Now, very few of these comorbidities have racial determinants. Almost all relate to the social determinants of health dating back to disadvantageous conditions that some people of color find themselves in from birth regarding the availability of an adequate diet, access to health care and the undeniable effects of racism in our society,” Fauci said.
