PEOPLE from ethnic minorities are not only much more likely to die from Covid, but LESS likely to take the vaccine. It is a looming disaster which we must address.
It has long been known black and Asian communities are at greater risk.

That’s partly down to so many living in densely populated areas and working in frontline key-worker jobs.
Some 42 per cent of Pakistani and Bangladeshi people say the same.
Their safety or ethical fears have been stoked by disgusting, unfounded anti-vax propaganda.
The drugs contain no animal products. They do not alter DNA. They comply with all religions.
Community leaders are already working to combat this sick misinformation.
We applaud them. Unless they succeed, we are staring at a new level of public health catastrophe for people of colour.
DID Donald Trump make America great again? No. He did not.

All of it was overshadowed by the incessant stupidity of his tweets and speeches . . . by his ignorance, boorish arrogance and monumental vanity.
And even those were eclipsed by him ultimately undermining democracy and the rule of law and inciting a riot.

Joe Biden takes office today.
We don’t know if he is the President the US needs. If he panders to his party’s lefties while ignoring working-class voters he’ll fail.

So it turns the stomach to see them grab new taxpayer-funded laptops and iPads worth £100,000 to “work” from home.
We have little doubt those sumptuous properties were already bristling with tech.
But no public expense is spared if Lords and Ladies fancy an upgrade to a top-spec laptop worth £1,000.
Compare that to the plight of our poorest families.
One of the obstacles to decent online schooling in lockdowns is the number of kids with NO device.
Many still don’t have one, even though 800,000 have now been sent out.
Peers’ new toys should come with one condition . . . all their other kit is donated to children who need it.
