La Covid au prisme des minorités vulnérables

Abstract : The Covid-19 pandemic as a collective experience has brought certain minority experiences closer to the majority’s. The most obvious example have been the 2020 lockdowns, which has suddendly given able-bodied individuals the experience of the homeboundedness known to crips. Some other parallels constitute an unexpected positive impact of the pandemic, which has generally increased the level of solidarity in a common ordeal. Nevertheless, most pre-pandemic social vulnerabilities have perpetuated and even worsened. From proven correlations between one’s level of precarity and vulnerability to Covid-19 to documented cases of treatment refusal to crip patients as a ressource-saving policy, most marginalities have been exacerbated by the pandemic and its handling. Although in many cases this exacerbation results from correlation and unpredictable/unsolvable practical issues, it seems very important to assert that such disparities in individuals’ vulnerabilities to the pandemic also result from deliberate political choices or death-bearing ideologies.
