COVID-19 is known to disproportionately affect ethnic minorities in number of settings. This phenomenon has also been reported in the UK where the black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) group has adverse health outcomes in terms of number of both cases and mortality rates when compared to the white local population. This trend is also observed among the BAME staff working in the National Health Service. Number of plausible explanations and the importance of various approaches including social-determinants approach is pointed out. This pandemic has re-ignited the debate on social inequalities, issues around social deprivation and health inequalities within the UK. This article concludes with some policy recommendations.
