Black infants have less than HALF the chance of survival compared to white babies – and a third of the chance if they live in rural areas

Black babies born in rural areas of the US are three times more likely to die at birth than city-born white infants, a new CDC report shows.

The data published today reveal the drastic differences between a white baby’s chances of survival and a black or Hispanic baby’s chances.

It also highlights the fact that healthcare establishments in rural areas are less advanced than those in America’s largest cities.

The report draws attention to the fact that minorities do not receive the same healthcare benefits as white people in the US and it emphasizes the dangers of living far from top medical professionals who are located in US cities.
