Black & Asian people in UK more likely to die from COVID-19, says health report

The report by PHE on Covid-19 showed there was a disproportionate effect on ethnic minorities, while confirming death tolls among the elderly were far higher.The report also said that people who are of Chinese, Indian, Pakistani or other Asian ethnicity, as well as those who are Caribbean or other Black ethnicity, had between a 10 to 50% higher risk of death than the white British group.

Does the virus work differently in these minorities? What puts them at such a risk?

So why have Caucasian countries been worst affected then? What isn't 'racist' these days? The word has lost all meaning at this point.

I think it's been mentioned that this may in part be due to Vitamin D deficiency, at least in darker skinned minorities. Chinese tend to have lighter skin so I'm not sure if this is the case. Also, some ethnic minorities tend to have more people living in the same household (including older relatives), thus increasing the chances of speading the virus. I'm just speculating here.

Funny how Pakistanis get to claim that they are a minority while Poles and Romanians living in Britain are just white
