Let’s keep it simple as I compare COVID-19 to a cousin who keeps showing up at the family gatherings uninvited. We may all have a family member who regardless of our intent to keep them away from family gatherings, always manages to find out where they are being held and shows up. COVID-19 has shown up uninvited in the Black community and has caused chaos. The type of chaos that has infected family members, caused the death of family members and left family members with lingering side effects that have yet to be determined. COVID-19 has taken up residence in the Black community with no signs of leaving any time soon.
