How do communities promote equality and support regarding Covid affecting us to this day?
Lower-income communities of a certain race/ethnicity are dealing with the pandemic much worse than others and might have not received the same level of support. I think that they don’t receive much help are at a higher risk of getting infected and are not cured as fast or efficiently.What do you think?
With this pandemic, it might be hard to spread awareness and the message of equality through communities because our focus is guided elsewhere. Different types of people might receive different types of support and aid depending on their race, color, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status.
There is an article that helps give much insight on this issue: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0020764021991896
What type of people doesn’t receive much aid?
How are the communities themselves dealing with this pandemic?
How many people catch the disease in those communities?
What is the government doing to help?
They say “Our findings underscore the importance of identifying the unique mental health impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on parents in high-risk communities. In high-risk communities, parental stress is a pressing problem that, if unaddressed, has the potential to result in even greater psychological distress and child maltreatment. Training community healthcare providers to assess and address parental stress can lead to increased community capacity and the development of a community-based network to serve as the first line of support for parents and their children.”
