Are some ethnic groups more vulnerable to Covid-19 than others?

This Institute for Fiscal Studies and Nuffield Foundation report brings together evidence on the unequal health and economic impacts of Covid-19 on people in minority ethnic groups in the United Kingdom, presenting information on risk factors for each of the largest minority ethnic groups in England and Wales: white other, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, black African and black Caribbean.

The analysis focuses on a limited but crucial set of risk factors in terms of both infection risk and economic vulnerability in the short term.
