The new study found that the suspicious incidence of COVID-19 recorded by the GP at the height of the epidemic was three times higher than the number of officially confirmed infections.
The study suggested that Coronavirus There was more among the people than previously thought.
Many people who were contracted COVID-19Leadership author Dr. Sally Hall said even people with mild symptoms would not be tested.
Others may not be able to access test centers.
Between February 14 and April 30, 8,985 suspected cases were recorded at GPs, at the same time triple the number of people found at test centers.
Research by Queen Mary University in London has found that dementia patients are seven times more likely to have suspected cases of the disease.
Adults of black, Asian, and minority ethnic groups (BAMA) were twice as likely to present with suspicious symptoms than white adults.
Studies have shown that other risk factors should not have increased this risk due to other health conditions, such as obesity or social deprivation.
Unlike other studies, it found that women were slightly more at risk of suspected infections than men.
The study said the higher risk for men “comes later in the disease trajectoria”.
Suspicious cases were studied because test results were not sent to GPs during the study period.
About 1.2 million adults registered with 157 practices in four East London clinical commission groups were taken from primary care records at the time of the anonymous data outbreak.
Of the three of the four bars studied, London had the death rate in the top five, while 55% of the region’s population was an ethnic minority.
Dr Hull said: “High prevalence among BAMA patients remains a major concern and we now know that nationality is still a risk factor even after you consider social deprivation, long-term situation and physical mass index.
“So there’s more to run it, which urgently needs more research.”
Factors such as family size, employment, travel, and the availability of personal protective equipment were not considered.
Dr Hull added: “It is going to be very important that GPs manage case records in their community, because in any case if cases are on the rise again and if we see a second wave of infection, it can provide an early warning.”
The study, which has been peer-reviewed, has been published in the British Journal of General Practice.
