BORIS Johnson has revealed 181 NHS workers and 131 social care workers have died from coronavirus.
The PM said the deaths were a tragic loss.
Mr Johnson said in PMQs today: “181 NHS and 131 social care workers deaths have sadly been reported involving COVID-19 I know the thoughts of the whole house are with their families and friends.”
Mr Johnson said the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) was looking at evidence that people from BAME (black, asian and minority ethnic) background were being disproportionately affected by the virus.
He said: “We are looking at all the co-morbidities associated with coronavirus, all the reasons people may disproportionately affected and a rapid review is now being conducted.
“We will be taking steps to ensure (particularly vulnerable groups) are protected.”
