Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) has blamed the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in her district on “environmental racism” before stating it was a “pre-existing condition.”

AOC made the remarks while claiming racism was to blame for the outbreak being more pronounced in Democrat-controlled cities like New York City.

“Inequality, environmental racism, these are pre-existing conditions, and when you have a pandemic – similar to what we saw with Hurricane Maria – when you have a natural disaster or an event like a pandemic hit communities that have already been ravaged by weakened health care systems, weakened infrastructure,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“The South Bronx has one of the highest childhood asthma rates in the country."

"When we talk about environmental racism, we’re talking about illegal dumping, we’re talking about concentrating waste sites, and concentrating highways and trucking zones through the poorest communities in the country and the blackest communities, [in] the brownest communities.”

WATCH:

Last week, Ocasio-Cortez accused President Donald Trump of knowing the coronavirus was coming, saying the “incompetence” of his administration’s response to the epidemic has caused unnecessary deaths.

She said COVID-19 was a result of "inequality" and "science denial," while focusing the blame on the President.

“Overall, not just President Trump, but this entire administration knew what was coming," Ocasio-Cortez said.

"Trump knew this pandemic was coming."

"The military knew this pandemic was coming."

"The CDC knew this pandemic was coming."

"HHS Health and Human Services knew this pandemic was coming," she claimed.

Earlier this week, AOC also called for a socialist overhaul of the U.S. government and the removal of a “profit motive” from lawmakers’ decisions on the coronavirus.

Ocasio-Cortez and fellow congresswomen Ilhan Omar posted videos on Twitter, presenting their progressive views on how they would change the federal efforts to combat the virus.
