Ethic minorities mote likely to be Corolavirus victims

Robert Henderson

Ethnic minorities are reported to be more susceptible to the  coronavirus.

This is intriguing  because  different ethnic minorities are involved. That suggests  it is down to behaviour rather than genetic  differences.

It could be a greater reluctance amongst ethnic minorities  to follow the stay indoors  regime laid down by the government.

Another factor might be health conditions such as obesity and diabetes  being more prevalent amongst ethnic minorities.

It might  be that ethnic minorities tend to live in urban areas more than the native majority.

It might be  because   ethic minorities  have a strong tendency to live together in certain urban  areas.

It might be because ethnic minorities are more likely leave the UK to visit areas outside of the UK  which have no strong healthcare system or a government capable of enforcing rules such as lockdown.

I doubt whether it can be down to poor socio-economic circumstances because there are far more white British families  in such circumstances
