Covid-19 is known to be particularly risky for the elderly. For many minorities, the disease is killing them in the prime of their lives.
Among people in the U.S. who died between their mid-40s and mid-70s since the pandemic began, the virus is responsible for about 9% of deaths. For Latino people who died in that age range, the virus has killed nearly 25%, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of death-certificate data collected by federal authorities.
