Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the biggest risk factors for coronavirus are age, gender, living in a city and being black or from a minority ethnic background.

In the daily coronavirus briefing, he said the government is determined to “get to the bottom of this” and “find ways of closing the gap”.

Referring to COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on BAME people, he said: “People are angry about racial injustice and I get that. Black lives matter.”
