Next day briefing: Beyond the data: Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on BAME groups
Over recent months, the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people has become clear. In early June, we published a briefing summarising the most significant data and guidance now available, including an overview of the first part of the Public Health England (PHE) review of disparities in risk and outcomes.
Yesterday, PHE released a second report: Beyond the data: Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on BAME groups. This briefing summarises that report which includes a wider review of current literature, as well as evidence gathered from stakeholders informing the first part of the review omitted from the initial publication. It sets out a summary of the recommendations from stakeholders calling for urgent action to address issues of structural inequality.Download
