Racial Disparities and COVID-19 | The New York Academy of Sciences

After months of data collection, it's clear that infections and deaths caused by COVID-19 are impacting Black and Latinx communities at much higher rates. What can science tell us about these disparities and how to tackle them?

I was optimistic that the war on science and the disregard of experts would both fade with the pandemic. Anthony Fauci receiving death threats proved my optimism premature. Science is not a religion. Science is not something I believe in. Science is a tool that informs decisions. I know the scientific method, correctly applied, is the best tool for addressing challenges like the pandemic. It is a method for learning about and altering the world. Skepticism is foundational in the scientific method. Informed hypothesis generation, testing, analysis and refinement form the basis for the scientific method. Data informs decisions in science. Hunches aren’t science. Anecdotes aren’t science. The drugs and vaccines that ultimately stop this horror will be products of science made by experts. I can muster hope that public appreciation will come. Sadly, I believe the return of anti-vaxxers is more likely. - Mark Jones, The Dow Chemical Company Good quote #COVID19 #coronavirus #Science

It was very interesting reading up on the Covid-19 outbreak on the New York Academy of Sciences website. I am praying researchers can find a vaccine for Coronavirus. While I am at home most of the day, I recently subscribed to this movie streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. I just watched a science fiction film called Dimensions, which tells the story of a young scientist, Stephen, who is determined to travel back in time. The film definitely kept me wondering the whole time if time travel could happen or is happening. I would highly recommend joining Film Festival Flix because there are so many movies to watch during quarantine.
