Race Disparity Unit report: Quarterly report on progress to address Covid-19 health inequalities

This is the first quarterly report on progress to address the findings of Public Health England’s (PHE) review into disparities in the risks and outcomes of COVID-19.

The PHE review set out some of what was known at the time about COVID-19 and ethnicity.  It told us what the disparities in risks and outcomes were, but not why they had arisen or what could be done about them.

The Race Disparity Unit has been working collaboratively across government and with the Office for National Statistics, and is liaising with universities and researchers to build the evidence base and to get a better understanding of what is driving these disparities.
