How the Indiscriminate Virus Reinforced our Inequalities and the Lessons we can Draw from this when it is all over

Wilén, Nina LU (2020) In Egmont Institute Commentary
Abstract
The Corona pandemic is changing the way we live and function as a society for at least the coming weeks or months. While it is a virus that does not take into account race, sex, class or age, it is also quite brutally revealing and reinforcing socio-economic inequalities which reflect the distribution of power in our societies. This, at the same time as it is showing us the strength of empathy, respect and solidarity, in a time where individualism long has been the guiding principle.
