Abstract

Lucinda Platt and Ross Warwick investigate recent claims that minority ethnic groups are being worse affected by COVID-19. Drawing on new IFS research, they show that accounting for group differences in age and geography, mortality is disproportionately high for all minority groups, with black Africans particularly badly affected. At the same time, some groups, particularly Pakistanis and Bangladeshis face worse economic impacts as a result of the lockdown
