Some city officials are calling for an in depth look at the rate the coronavirus is hitting minority communities.
Public Advocate Jumaane Williams joined Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and clergy from across the five boroughs in asking for the city to look into why the virus is killing people of color more than other communities.
Williams says he's been asking for a new policy to be adopted to address this issue. He has also recently laid out his own plan in his "response and recovery report."
