The Impact of Covid-19 on the Most Disadvantaged in Our Communities

Radical non-pharmaceutical measures, which have been introduced to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the closures of schools/creches/colleges, shops and services, have also caused their own crisis. The impact of the pandemic, and the measures taken to tackle its spread, will have significant short and long term effects on everyone but they have the potential to result in more negative impacts on the most disadvantaged in our communities. This report critically examines the impact of the virus in more than medical terms. Covid-19 has exposed deep inequalities in our society that have left many communities extremely vulnerable and even more marginalised than heretofore.
