Who might we need to think more about during this crisis?

Here we will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on certain groups.

This section will focus more on the impact of COVID-19 on groups. This might be a group of people with shared characteristics (e.g., ‘at risk’ groups on stricter lockdown), a network such as families or community groups, or people working together as a team, such as in the workplace. But overall we are wanting to look at groups who we need to think about more during the crisis.

While everyone has individual experiences, we can often gain insight into these experiences when considering people as part of a group, system, or network. This can be referred to as systemic.

Please join the discussion below! Which groups of people do you think might be most affected by COVID-19?
