Black people ‘twice as likely to catch coronavirus’


Black people are twice as likely as white people to catch the coronavirus, a study of 18 million people suggests. The research also indicates Asian people are 1.5 times more likely than white people to be infected — and may be more likely to need intensive care. Researchers say their findings are of “urgent public-health importance” and raise questions about how vaccines will be prioritised within at-risk groups. The work, in EClinical Medicine, adds support to other studies’ findings.
