Update: Research by CEG made the top ten list for the most read articles in the British Journal of General Practice in 2020. We used data from GP records across east London to demonstrate there were three times as many suspected Covid-19 cases presented to GPs during the peak of the first wave than shown in official Covid-19 test results, and twice the risk for ethnic minorities. Read the full research paper here, or find out more about our work on Covid inequalities in our online case study.
We would like to thank all inner east London practices for contributing their data to this important research. The paper was one of the earliest to reveal how Covid-19 was not affecting the population equally. It had impact across mainstream media, including the Times and the Mail.
