President Trump has not fulfilled the promise to keep all data on racial disparity rates of COVID-19 contractions and death. The Washington Post reports more than 80% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Georgia are African American. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms reports a spike in coronavirus cases.

April Ryan speaks with Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), who is co-chair of the Joint Economic Committee, on unsurprising data related to racial and socioeconomic status, coronavirus contraction, and loss of employment. Rep Beyer says the real work will be overcoming income inequality while rebuilding the economy.
