and to solve anther conundrum
it also says that medics have the same likelihood of the disease as
normal people, even after taking account of age profiles
That statistic has been circulating for a couple of weeks now.
Whatever the genetic reasons turn out to be (maybe they'll publish
it one day), and every death is a tragedy, the early news did tend
to concentrate on demised older BAME NHS workers.
But care workers are worse
Maybe they are more likely to be encountering infected patients
(although the NHS has scaled back a lot, they are still treating lots of
younger people - for other ailments, and who have probably been self
isolating themselves previously - and who aren't infected).
