This is the largest study to date, analysing NHS health data from 17.4 MILLION UK adults between 1 Feb and 25th April 2020.
It gives the strongest evidence to date on risk factors associated with COVID-19 death.
Key factors related to COVID-19 death included being male, older age, uncontrolled diabetes and severe asthma.

We found the higher risk among BME people is NOT attributable to other factors.
This is very important indeed.
And there's more. If you look a little more closely, you will also see that, as we go, we have been making generalisable tools, to share with the whole community.
