Native Americans Are Much More Likely To Get Covid Says IHS 


As American loosens its carefulness around Covid, the Indian Health Service isn't giving up. Here's what it has to say on its website. The Alaska Department of Health & Social Services has consistently released information showing that a vast majority of all who die of Covid in Alaska are elderly. 


NOTICE FROM INDIAN HEALTH SERVICE... 

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected American Indian and Alaska Native populations across the country. American Indians and Alaska Natives have infection rates over 3.5 times higher than non-Hispanic whites, are over four times more likely to be hospitalized as a result of COVID-19, and have higher rates of mortality at younger ages than non-Hispanic whites. This has highlighted the need for comprehensive, culturally appropriate personal and public health services that are available and accessible to all American Indian and Alaska Native people.
