young, healthy people were getting the worst of it
i don't know if there was any kind of racial disparity. I'm guessing they weren't even collecting data on it, but I always go back to last spring where there was a short lived We're all in this Together mindset. so aside from the assumption that if you're not old or sick, you'll likely be ok, as soon as numbers dropped that black and brown people were disproportionately affected, all this "open up now! / "muh freedoms" took off and never looked back
but i do remember reading about a sizable anti-masker movement back then in SF of all places.
