Corona virus is global, Stay safe in the tropics

18th April 2020. I have been at home now for 5weeks or so, and counting. Death count this morning is 14,576. It was never a joke.

In the UK, 70% of deaths among health and social care workers are from an ethnic minority. Despite only accounting for 13% of the population in England and Wales, 44% of all NHS doctors and 24% of nurses are from BME background.
