Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Men in low-skilled jobs more likely to die from Covid-19 in England & Wales, new govt data reveals”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The figures, which show how coronavirus spread through and impacted different sectors in England and Wales, found that almost two-thirds (5,128) of the 7,961 Covid-19 deaths among working age people were primarily men employed in low-skilled jobs, as well as carers, healthcare workers, leisure industry staff and other similar service roles.

“When looking at broad groups of occupations, men who worked in elementary occupations (699 deaths) or caring, leisure and other service occupations (258 deaths) had the highest rates of death involving COVID-19, with 66.3 and 64.1 deaths per 100,000 males, respectively,” the ONS report said.

When looking at broad groups of occupations, the highest rates of death in men were in:▪️ elementary occupations, with 66.3 deaths per 100,000 males▪️ caring, leisure and other service occupations, with 64.1 deaths per 100,000 males➡️ https://t.co/SyH5234p7Upic.twitter.com/VD15CPGElE

While a lower death rate was recorded in women, female low-skilled workers – including those working on assembly lines and as machine operators – were equally more likely to die from the virus than their higher-skilled counterparts.

The ONS identified a higher than average rate of death for all employees within the social care and healthcare industry.
