COVID 19 and Black people!

It’s become clear that Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (described here as ‘Black’) people are more vulnerable to COVID-19 than white people.

With the publication of the ‘Beyond the data’ part of Public Health England’s review of COVID-19 impact on Black communities, as well as much more research, the evidence is clear. The review found “that the highest age standardised diagnosis rates of COVID-19 per 100,000 population were in people of Black ethnic groups (486 in females and 649 in males) and the lowest were in people of White ethnic groups (220 in females and 224 in males)... Death rates from COVID-19 were higher for Black and Asian ethnic groups when compared to White ethnic groups.”
