Eid was due to happen today, so definitely not a 'factor ' in the increase in cases.

It's also a fact that BAME people are more likely to catch coronavirus - but, as yet, no-one knows why.
BAME people are also more likely to suffer from kidney disease than white people, and they don't know why that happens, either. :-(

Short notice for people to cancel Eid PM has said to stop anymore cases they are more vonurable why is this. White people on Beaches up & down the country taking no notice of advise it will never go away untill people behave.

I think it is ‘predominantly white’ rather than ‘white’.
