WHY HIGHER BAME DEATHS
A member of BAPIO, Dr. Parijat Bhattacharjee, is a consultant across North-west London hospitals including Northwick Park, Central Middlesex, and Ealing. Speaking exclusively to Asian Voice, he said, "Deaths among ethnic minority doctors and nurses are indeed disproportionate. But are we more susceptible to coronavirus related deaths? I can't say. Hypertension, diabetes and higher BMI among South Asians in the UK are prevalent. These could be contributing risk factors. On top of this cultural factors may add to the absence of social isolation, especially in families with elderly members."
