Coronavirus: South Asian people most likely to die in hospital

By June 19, 2020National News

From the BBC 

South Asian people are the most likely to die from coronavirus after being admitted to hospital in Great Britain, major analysis shows.  

It is the only ethnic group to have a raised risk of death in hospital and is partly due to high levels of diabetes.  

The study is hugely significant as it assessed data from four-in-10 of all hospital patients with Covid-19. 

The researchers said policies such as protecting people at work and who gets a vaccine may now need to change. 

Twenty-seven institutions across the UK, including universities and public health bodies, as well as 260 hospitals, were involved in the study. 

The findings have been made public online ahead of being formally published in a medical journal.  

However, the results were passed onto the UK government’s scientific advisory group – Sage – more than a month ago.
