We have written this evidence submission as four researchers of race, ethnicity and health, based primarily at the University of Edinburgh. In this submission we discuss how ethnic minorities in Scotland are likely to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19. We anticipate that COVID-19 (and the UK Government’s response) will have disproportionate health and economic impacts on ethnic minority groups in Scotland, though official data is still pending. Finally, we make recommendations for what the Scottish Government can do to mitigate these impacts.
