    On the 17th local time, US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said in an interview with US media that the main reason why the number of people with new coronary pneumonia in the United States is so high is the health of Americans. Especially minority communities. This view was refuted by the US media.

    According to CNN, Hazard made relevant remarks while accepting CNN's "State of the Union" program, which was hosted by Jack Tarper. At the beginning of the show, Tapper pointed out that the number of deaths from the new crown pneumonia in the United States has approached 90,000. Hazard then attributed the cause to the health of the Americans, saying, "Unfortunately, the United States has a very diverse population. The ethnic group with severe unhealthy complications, which puts many people in our community, especially African Americans, and minority communities at risk, because these people have potential disease health differences and associated diseases. This is the United States health care system Of course we have to resolve the unfortunate legacy."

    When Tapper further asked whether Hazard’s remarks imply that many Americans died of COVID-19 because they were “less healthier than people in other parts of the world,” Hazard denied it, but further stated that the U.S. "The burden of concomitant diseases (including obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes) is seriously disproportionate, and these facts prove that it does put us at risk of any type of disease."

    When Tapper asked whether it meant that it was “American’s fault” that caused such a high number of deaths, Hazard said “this is not a mistake” and said that this is a simple epidemiology, “if we suffer from a high With blood pressure and diabetes, we will face the risk of serious complications brought about by the new coronavirus."

    Hazard's statement was quickly questioned by the US media. CNN quoted a study published by the American Public Media (APM) on May 11 and pointed out that at that time, the number of deaths in the United States exceeded 80,000, of which only 17,155 were black.

    Vox also analyzed in an article that “the injustice of public health has caused an increase in the death toll of people of color” is correct, but it is a shirk to blame the main cause of the number of deaths in the United States over other countries in the world. The implication is that the minority is responsible for this, not the federal government.

    The US media also pointed out that the more direct and broader explanation for the unusually high number of deaths in the US should be the US government’s "chaotic" and "anti-scientific" response to the pandemic. Even if people of color really have poor health, this is the result of their long-term social and economic marginalization and uneven nutrition. In other words, Hazard's statement can be overturned. It is not people of color that have contributed to the rise in the number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States, but the US government is promoting the death of people of color.
