    It is funny how people have been clapping every Thursday and now that he BBC brought a news of minority death in NHS. Hell loss, this is like soldiers on front line. Which ever people there will die eventually it dose not matter the colour. We should rather thank them for helping others to survive and stop this. Some people have sad life.

    Lol people think, by having diverse workforce in the NHS makes it less racist, the British did not colonise all over the world by them selfs.

    Are your hospitals killing black people because of lack of oxygen. Are black and Asian staff turning a blind eye for pay and promotion. The deliberate targeting and removal of black staff from key position in surgery and critical care areas where staff are incapacitated . Where there are no black staff and black people and children are being cared for there should be video recording in the rooms they occupy to prevent the white and Asian staff from wilful neglect and lack of due care. Black people need their own hospitals with black staff

    BBC stop using racial propaganda to try to make black people the face of Covid-19. You know that the vast majority of people affected by the virus are white. And even if black people are so much more at risk of death from the virus why isnt the government doing anything about this ? How about a stimulus payment or something to help protect those most at risk. Africa is one of the least affected countries in the world by Covid-19 yet their have been talks of testing vaccines there when white populated countries like the US,UK,Italy and Spain have the most cases. Does not make sense stop your lies and racism BBC and other news networks people are on to you and will not be decieved by your cowardly lies !

    The famous Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg warns of a new wave of cleverly induced panic and thousands of unnecessary deaths, as the 'COVID-19' (Hydroxy) Chloroquine treatments now being prepared in hundreds of trials by the WHO will soon be performed in Africa. 10-20% of the male population of former malaria regions have "favism", glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD).

    Treatment with (Hydroxy) Chloroquine is often fatal for this large group of people.

    Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PDD) is a congenital metabolic error prone to breakdown of red blood cells.

    Those affected usually have no symptoms.

    After a specific trigger, symptoms such as yellowish skin, dark urine, shortness of breath and fatigue may develop.

    Complications can include anemia and newborn jaundice.

    Some people never have symptoms.

    Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency

    Triggered by infections, certain medications, stress, foods like broad beans.

    It is an X-linked recessive condition that results in a defective glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme. Red blood cell breakdown can be caused by infections, certain medications, stress, or foods such as broad beans.

    Depending on the specific mutation, the severity of the condition can vary.

    The diagnosis is based on symptoms and is supported by blood tests and genetic testing.

    Avoiding triggers is important.

    About 400 million people have the condition worldwide.

    It is especially common in certain parts of Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East.

    Men are affected more often than women.

    In 2015, it would have resulted in 33,000 deaths.

    Carriers of the G6PDD allele may be partially protected against malaria.

    Treatment with (Hydroxy) Chloroquine is often fatal.

    This is down to demographics not some genetic predisposition. The rates
    of BAME killed by the virus are higher in big cities where the
    population of BAME has a higher percentage of the population per capita.
    It's the same for hospital workers killed, the same demographics. It
    has been demonstrated already. The media and the BAME usual champions
    are making it into a race issue but it simply is not!

    I really hate how the BBC (perhaps others) is handling data released by ONS (Office of National Statistics) to inform the public of BLACK MEN are likely to die of Covid-19. Doesn't seem to glorify racism or is it for the public interest!? If there is to be any good from those statistics; BLACK MEN NEED SHIELDING!

    We'll, the stats ?? on the death pool have heightened in the racially amalgamated states/cities for the African descendants who dwell within the Western democracy side of life (no suprise!). Biblically not quoting and no disrespect to anyone who has suffered (disclaimer).

    Once again, is this man insinuating, that BAME's should be getting more wages for apparently risking their lives upto 4x more dangerously for them than none-BAME's..!!!

    Should there be different queues? Standing in queues seems odd, as looking into. As a BAME person, would you stand in a queue with 4x Boris Johnson now???? Depending on which way the UK wind is blowing…!!!!2m ain't nothing.???

    Plus, all the immunisations vaccines injections they been giving UK BAME's over the many years. Are they sure this Covid19 event, doesn't have a knock on effect to the tampering of BAME's immune systems in the past (BCG and Boosters ect ect)????????? If this tampering have caused a weakened immune system, can BAMEs make a claim for compensation..?

    The immune tampering and Boosters injections apparantly received by all UK dweller's, seems to have only worked for non-BAMEs. Disclaimer: that last quote is a joke, but politically been correct. BAMEs have been there before.!1950s experimenting on BAMEs immune system is bound to have a knock on effect!!!!. To Covid19 virus carriers like Boris Johnson, who is now a 4x dangerous to a BAME…

    We have waited years for research on grooming gang ethnicity. Then the government refused to publish the findings saying it wasn't in the public interest. See official Parliamentary Petition with 120,000 signatures asking for grooming gang research report to be made public.  Lets see how quickly research can be completed regarding Covid 19 deaths of BAEM people? Don't get me wrong every death is a tragedy.  Young white girls have been killed by grooming gang members, were was the stampede for research on ethnicity then?

    So we will now be spending a ton of money to fund these studies, money that could be used to help the nhs and economy, to do a study on why ethnic minorities ,who seem to care a lot less about maintaining social distancing and choose to live less health lifestyles, have a higher chance of being infected. Multiculturalism is a strength.

    Wait until they perfect viruses to go for skin pigmentation/y chromosomes specifically – instead of beating around the bush.

    Why is it considered a surprise?
    The poor and ethnic minorities often have health issues, overweight, poor diets, work in transport, care homes, NHS, live in cities, large families in small flats /houses.

    Maybe because BAME health workers are on the real front lines hence more exposed to patients while the whites are mostly the managers or only doing the supervisory works that they are normally in their offices therefore the exposure to patients is minimal.

    The only answer to this would be, people with melanin in their skin are at greater risk because they can't absorb vitamin D, therefore resulting in a weaker immune system

    Ethnic minorities are least likely to follow the lockdown, go anywhere in London and you can see that! Groups all over the place!

    Because you turn them away when they come with symptoms. And of course, they didn't receive the same level of care as Boris Johnson

    It's because they live 20 too a house….and that's not including the loft and cellar…..and are not as hygienic as they should be ..and most don't speak English and do not heed news bulletins…

    Well it can't be due to deprivation because BAME doctors and nurses are no less deprived than their white counterparts.
