Research on the effect of Covid-19 on African community in London

Many families from the black African and Afro-Caribbean communities are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The community has suffered high rate of infection, deaths and exposure to Covid-19 as front-line workers. This has impacted the community in other ways as they are experiencing increasing food poverty, limited access to statutory provisions, homelessness, increasing cases of domestic violence, children unable to access e-learning platforms, people with no recourse to public fund and undocumented migrants with no support, mental health issues and bereavement. Covid-19 has negatively impacted on the health and well-being of the community.
