    I was about to reply to the "Ethnic Minorities" thread, but it got locked before I could.

    Anyway, somebody pointed out that Bradford has a low number of cases of the virus compared with London, despite having a large Asian (sic) population.

    I offer two reasons for discussion as to why that might be. 1) Crowded conditions are conducive to the spread of disease and Bradford, as horrible as it is, is not as crowded as London. In fact it's not really crowded at all, and 2) Bradford is in the north. The majority of virus cases are in the south. The virus has not spread northwards much, although it might be doing - like the spread of Ash dieback.

    You can probably blame the London spread on public transport. Its impossible to social distance on the tube. Plus 7M people... but the number of people who commute is huge;

    Actually it sounds like Asians are not the group that can suffer more but their isn't enough information about to know with any certainty.
