Another study finding was that the hospital admission rate for Latinix patients was 29.1%, lower than than for White patients (40.1%) or Black patients (41.7%).

Their research letter, published by JAMA, Journal of the American Medical Association, can be found here.

The findings come as no surprise to Dr. Kathleen Raquel Page, one of the co-authors who said she and her colleagues noticed early on that an unusually high percentage of their Covid-19 patients were Hispanic.
