Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday called for coronavirus "reparations" for minorities in America, claiming that "redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions" leading to a higher death rate from the pandemic:

"COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities.

Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.

Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations"
