Association of Race With Mortality Among Patients Hospitalized With Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at 92 US Hospitals
Is race associated with mortality among patients hospitalized with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the United States?
In this cohort study of 11 210 individuals with COVID-19 presenting for care at 92 hospitals across 12 states, there was no difference in all-cause, in-hospital mortality between White and Black patients after adjusting for age, sex, insurance status, comorbidity, neighborhood deprivation, and site of care.
In this study, race was not independently associated with in-hospital mortality after adjusting for differences in sociodemographic and clinical factors.
