VIDEO: What impact is COVID-19 having on people with disabilities?

Associate Professor Anna Arstein-Kerslake discusses the impact that COVID-19 is having on people with disabilities.

For people with disabilities, COVID-19 poses particular problems. But they aren't the problems you might expect. It is our responsibility to ensure that all members of the public are equally protected. For people with disability this means taking into consideration their diverse and varying needs and ensuring that measures that are taken in response to the pandemic do not make people with a disability more vulnerable to COVID-19.
