Taylor Williams, left, and other shoppers what in line to enter a Traders Joes store, Monday, April 6, 2020, in Woodmere Village, Ohio. Only 25 customers are allowed in the store at one time.

Black Ohioans represent 14% of the state’s population but one-in-four of Ohio's positive COVID-19 cases, nearly a third of all hospitalizations and one-in-five associated deaths. That’s why Gov. Mike DeWine last week reiterated the growing call to see racism as a public health crisis.

Coming up on our Weekly Reporter Roundtable, we talk about DeWine’s plans to address the crisis, and more.

Guests:

  • Julie Carr Smyth, Statehouse correspondent, Associated Press
  • Laura Bischoff, state government reporter, Dayton Daily News
  • Andy Chow, reporter, Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau
