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

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
