The pandemic is not affecting everyone equally.
The pandemic has made social inequalities more obvious and intense.
People living in care homes, people without housing, people living with food insecurity, migrant workers, and people working at low-paying front-line and factory jobs have been disproportionately at-risk.
Anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism, and ableism in medical settings have led to inequalities in care.
These inequalities are examples of systemic or system-level violence. These inequalities also make it more difficult for people who living with abuse to access support.
