Marsha de Cordova responds to ONS statistics on Covid-19 deaths by ethnic group

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, responding to ONS statistics on Covid-19 deaths by ethnic group, said:

“Across the globe, racial injustice has always had a devastating impact on society, and coronavirus has demonstrated the deadly consequences of when racial inequalities go unchecked.

“These findings are yet more evidence of the need for urgent action on this issue. But instead we have seen denial and delay from the Government.”
