An update on COVID-19 and the Asian Communities of San Francisco:

The City and County of San Francisco had 1,754 cases of COVID-19 and 31 deaths as of May 5, 2020. Asian Americans accounted for 13.7% of cases but 52% of the deaths. Among those infected, 6.7% have died, the highest proportion of all racial/ethnic groups. Understanding reasons for these disparities is critical for risk stratification of patients and protecting communities particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
