The Navajo Nation has surpassed New York and New Jersey for the highest per-capita coronavirus infection rate in the US— another sign of Covid-19’s disproportionate impact on minority communities, according to a CNN report.

The Navajo Nation, which spans parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, reported a population of 173,667 on the 2010 census. As a result, with 4,002 cases, the Native American territory has 2,304.41 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people.
