Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) people are not genetically more at-risk of dying from Covid-19, a new study has concluded. 

BAME communities are two to three times more likely to die from coronavirus than other members of the population, analysis of NHS data has previously revealed.

However, scientists in Japan and the US found no differences in seven genes associated with viral entry of SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that causes Covid-19 – across ethnic groups.

Pre-existing medical conditions and environmental factors are more likely to blame for people of ethnic minorities being more likely to die of the disease, they say.

Public Health England has also reported the mortality rate – the number of people dying with the coronavirus out of each 100,000 people – is more than three times as high for black men than other groups.

Although BAME people are not considered genetically more at risk of Covid-19, it’s been suggested minority ethnic people have had less access to medical resources during the pandemic and live in densely populated areas, causing fast transmission.

‘Morbidity and mortality vary significantly around the globe between populations and ethnic groups,’ the researchers say in Infection, Genetics and Evolution.

‘Disproportionately high incidence and mortality rates in African-Americans in the US could be due to non-genetic factors.’
