So, among black people, mortality is 255.7 people for every 100 thousand, and this is the highest indicator among any ethnic groups. For whites, it is 87 deaths per 100 thousand – the lowest rate. Dark-skinned women die from coronavirus 2.5 times more often than their white peers – 119 deaths per 100 thousand against 52 deaths. It is reported by the Daily Mail.
Unusual statistics also show a connection between religious preferences of citizens and the risk of death from COVID-19. Muslims and Jews are almost 2.5 times more likely to die due to coronavirus than atheists. According to statistics, from early March to mid-May for every 100 thousand British men 198.9 Muslims died from the coronavirus. In the group of atheists, mortality was 80.7. Moreover, among Jews this indicator is 187.9, among Hindus – 154.8, among Buddhists – 113.5. Among Christian men, he amounted to only 92.6 per 100 thousand.
A similar imbalance is observed in women. Mortality among Muslims is 98.2, among Jews – 94.3, among Hindus – 93.3, among Christians – 54.6, and among Buddhists – 50.7. Among atheists, this figure is only 47.9.
The results disappointed the experts because coronavirus kills three times more black people than whites. The disease generally disproportionately affects blacks, Asians, and other ethnic minorities. The reason for this imbalance still needs to be analyzed.
