Increased COVID-19 risk for ethnic minorities, according to academic study supported by NHS Digital

NHS Digital has contributed to a study by academics at the University of California and Cambridge University looking at the increased risk to people from ethnic minorities from COVID-19.

The study, published by Cambridge University, used NHS Digital’s expertise to safely and accurately link five datasets to construct a comprehensive record of the disease outcomes of a cohort of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in England.
