According to National Health Executive, there have been calls for further investigation and examination following the Government’s first quarterly report on progress into understanding and tackling Covid-19 disparities experienced by individuals from ethnic minority backgrounds.
The report suggests positive forward process should be made in order to support and help protect ethnic minority individuals and communities from an increased risk of Covid-19 from all over the UK. Some steps which have been taken include the increased importance of risk assessments for frontline health works from a BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) background and targeting messaging.
According to the report, the higher infection and mortality rates for ethnic minority groups can be explained due to factors such as occupational exposure, population density, geographical factors, household composition and more.
In the coming months, it is said that further analysis is planned to ensure that investigations continue in order to look at some of the underlying issues which may be leading to instances of inequality for those from BAME communities.
