Oppress and exploit BAME and working class people, make them more vulnerable to the virus, and then lock them all up in case we catch it from them?

Surely a different subject?


No it isn't. It is not yet known why there are differences across ethnicity. Could be significantly linked to overcrowded social conditions and poorer paid work in caring roles leading to higher exposure, as well as genetics.

Highest risk of what Paul?

Getting infected, dying or infecting others? Everyone already who knows or suspects they are infected is asked to self isolate, with no reference to individual characteristics.

This covers your point without the need for racial discrimination.

And to protect the larger population from what? If you "quarantine" all the people who are likely to die, then who will be left at risk?

You were spot on Honey:

Differences by ethnicity just down to where you live/what job you do.

Thankfully; otherwise just be fuel for the racists....
