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.

but without the age correlation

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

without sufficient PPE probably being the salient point
