Diddy held a Town Hall on Thursday night on REVOLT TV and discussed how COVID-19 is affecting the African-American community at large.

Diddy has been urging his fans to take the virus seriously, and his Town Hall included appearances from many celebs, including Angela Rye, Al Sharpton, Sen. Kamala Harris, Meek Mill and more.

Harris kicked off the Town Hall, saying:

"You look at what's happening in terms of documenting longstanding health disparities (among African Americans) ... asthma, 20 percent more likely to have it; high blood pressure, 40 percent more likely to have it; lupus, Black women are three times more likely that white women to have it. And this disease, this coronavirus, attacks people who otherwise have health conditions. So, we've got a lot at stake."

Last week, Diddy said the following in a PSA to his fans:

"We can't just sit back and leave our healthcare workers abandoned and unprotected. Over the next few days I'll be locked in and focused on finding ways to directly support our healthcare workers but I don't have all the answers. If you want to help or have any great ideas, please reach out to me now! God bless us all."
