Hard Hit Imperial County Struggles With Surge In COVID-19 Cases In California

CALEXICO, CALIFORNIA - JULY 24: Faustino, who is currently unemployed, waits after filling out unemployment forms in a bookkeeping shop near the U.S.-Mexico border in Imperial County, which has been hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, on July 24, 2020 in Calexico, California. Unemployment claims in California have reached their highest levels in almost three months with surging coronavirus cases upending plans to reopen the economy. Imperial County currently suffers from the highest death rate and near-highest infection rate from COVID-19 in California. The rural county, which is 85 percent Latino, borders Mexico and Arizona and endures high poverty rates and air pollution while also being medically underserved. In California, Latinos make up about 39 percent of the population but account for 55 percent of confirmed coronavirus cases. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
