It is now widely known that a disproportionate number of COVID-19 related mortalities in the UK have been in non-white, BAME populations . The obese, diabetics, hypertensives and the elderly have also been disproportionately affected. BAME doctors account for 94% of total deaths of doctors but comprise 44% of doctors .
