About The Study: The findings of this study that included 43,000 veterans suggest that Black veterans hospitalized with COVID-19 were less likely to be treated with evidence-based COVID-19 treatments, including systemic steroids, remdesivir, and immunomodulatory drugs. Differences in care were partially explained by within- and between-hospital differences and underscore the need for a comprehension approach to minimize racial variation in COVID-19 care.
