Coronavirus: Review to be launched in UK into why black people, minorities are worst-hit by COVID-19

The NHS and Public Health England will be launching a review to confirm why black people, minorities are worst affected by Covid-19 in the UK.

It has been recorded that black people from the minority background have been mostly hot by the covid-19 which led to a call for the government to investigate the number of deaths of people from the BAME community and those working for the NHS, during the coronavirus pandemic.

Coronavirus: Review to be launched in UK into why black people, minorities are worst-hit by COVID-19

Early research from the Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre (ICNARC) found that last week 34% of critically ill coronavirus patients in England, Wales and Northern Ireland were from black or minority ethnic backgrounds. The research was based on 3,300 patients from intensive care units.

The review will be led by the NHS and Public Health England along with other organisations, including the British Medical Association.

Recall that it was also reported earlier that African American are the most badly hit by the Coronavirus in the United States. This has led to speculations that it could be a result of the white supremacy and the Blacks are deliberately allowed to die in the coronavirus.

There are claims that the blacks need more Vitamin D and C to prevent preexisting health conditions from getting worse which has been made difficult with the lockdown order, preventing them from getting the vitamin D from its most natural source, the sun.

The lockdown according to some critics referring to it as “racism motivated lockdown” is said to be a tool to allow more black people and more ethnic minorities die from the coronavirus.

The review is set to address all these assumptions.
