Deputy Mayor for London Joanne McCartney calls for action over BAME report

Deputy Mayor for London Joanne McCartney calls for action over BAME report

Following the government’s publication of the Public Health England’s report on Disparities in the risk and outcomes of COVID-19, looking at the statical effects of Coronavira on Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) London Assembly Member for Enfield & Haringey and Deputy Mayor for London Joanne McCartney AM shared a message saying:

“Last week, the Government bowed to pressure and released Public Health England’s report on coronavirus health inequalities.

The report confirmed Black, Asian and minority ethnic people are more likely to contract and die from Covid-19. This tragic and unjust situation demands action. So, I was disappointed the report made no recommendations to the Government.

It is also concerning that evidence from BAME organisations and experts were not published with the report.

In January this year, Professor Michael Marmot’s landmark review of health inequalities revealed that a decade on from his first study, divides have got wider. Coronavirus has tragically illustrated this.

It is a shame the Government ignored the report at the time, and the new Minister for Equalities admitted she had never heard of it.

The Mayor is right to call for a public inquiry into the disproportionate impact that Covid-19 has had upon BAME communities, and it is positive that the Equality and Human Rights Commission have now decided to launch one.

In the meantime, we know that poverty, overcrowding, and key-worker job roles are all linked to the higher infection and death rates for BAME people.

The Government must now act upon these factors and the stark health inequalities in our society.”
