The death rate among British black Africans and British Pakistanis from coronavirus in English hospitals is more than 2.5 times that of the white population, according to  the Institute of Fiscal Studies.

Analysis by University College London has found BAME people are two to three times more likely to die from Covid-19 than the general population.

A report was commissioned to analyse how factors such as ethnicity, obesity and gender can affect people’s vulnerability to Covid-19. Health bosses sought “insight” after it was reported that deaths among BAME communities were disproportionately high.

The report was due to be pushed at the end of May, have as been delayed once again with no fixed date.

We are calling on the UK government to immediately publish their findings into why black and minority ethnic groups have been disproportionately affected by coronavirus.
