The institute is tracing the race and ethnicity of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Massachusetts. The reported percentages are based on incomplete Massachusetts Department of Public Health data that have a high proportion of "unknowns." We will update these percentages when more accurate public health data are released. We hope that state authorities improve this race and ethnicity data soon so a true analysis of the COVID-19 tragedy can occur.
