Thousands of volunteers are still needed for research studies into coronavirus treatments, especially amongst British Asian communities, who are often underrepresented in this type of research but can be at higher risk of developing more serious COVID-19 illness.

Led by the University of Oxford, the UK’s PRINCIPLE trial has established a National Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Community and Pharmacy Research Lead to strengthen recruitment from across these communities.

The trial is evaluating whether treatment early on in the community can help people aged over 50 recover quickly from COVID-19 illness, without the need for hospital admission.
