Asian, Black Patients More Likely to Die of COVID-19, Claims Study Probing Ethnicity-Linked Outcomes

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rack up a death toll across the globe, with governments rolling out vaccination programmes in an effort to stop the spread of the respiratory disease, extensive research continues to probe the plethora of factors that are behind the different outcomes of the infection among diverse populations.

COVID-19 patients of Asian and black descent suffered disproportionate rates of premature death from the infection, a recent study has concluded.

A team of researchers from Queen Mary University of London and Barts Health NHS Trust looked at 1,737 patients to conduct an in-depth study to explore coronavirus outcomes in black, Asian, and minority ethnic populations. The results of the study were published in BMJ Open.
