The global pandemic comes with challenges for everybody, in particular for those people who are most vulnerable, including people with disabilities. It becomes quite difficult for people with disabilities to maintain social distancing or access hygiene facilities.

Furthermore, COVID-19 poses an increased risk of infection for people who are above the age of 60 or who have chronic medical conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory condition
  • Cardiovascular disease

In such instances, to reduce the risk of infection it is recommended to support the people in need and to make sure they follow proper preventive and precautionary measures like frequently washing hands, using a face mask, etc.

Be safe by avoiding social gatherings or crowded areas.
