BAME coronavirus deaths: What's the risk for ethnic minorities?

Statistics from England show more people from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups are dying from coronavirus than those from white ethnic groups.

Public Health England found people from black ethnic groups are most likely to be diagnosed with Covid-19, and death rates were highest among people of black and Asian ethnic groups.

But why is this exactly? Is it to do with ethnicity - or are there other reasons which put people from BAME communities at such a disadvantage?
