    The tenor of your question implies that "get" here means "wipe out" and your answer is, that, it's not that specifically targeted.

    No.  It is a virus that only infects Caucasian blondes.

    It has already killed black people in Britain, chiefly workers in our National Health Service (NHS).

    Do you mean "Can Black people get COVID?" Yes. Anyone of any race, age, gender, religion, or nationality can get COVID and can pass it on to others and/or die from it. Very young children have died from it.

    A higher percentage of blacks get COVID, yes, and a higher percentage die of it, but it's relatively easy to see why.

    More black people live in poverty, which means smaller homes and closer contact with everyone in the household.

    Because they're poor, more black people live in multigenerational homes, so the young healthy people who can and usually do recover from the virus are infecting elderly people who don't fare as well.

    More black people are unable to self-isolate because they work in low-paying jobs considered essential. They're stocking store shelves, transporting patients, ringing up purchases, cleaning businesses after hours, working in food production lines or meat packing, like that.

    Because of lower income, more black people don't seek medical treatment until they are quite ill, in some cases until it's too late for some of the treatments shown to lessen the severity and duration of the illness.

    And because BLM is important to them, many black people are at the protests, where social distancing is difficult or impossible, although most are masked.
