Abstract


This special issue is really important in reminding us, as Mae Shaw points out, that we are far from being ‘all in this together’. Government statistics clearly demonstrate that Covid-19 has a much greater impact on people living in poverty. For example, the Office for National Statistics has revealed that there were 55 deaths for every 100,000 people in the poorest parts of England, compared with 25 in the wealthiest areas, and the National Records of Scotland show that Inverclyde, at the top of the Scottish index of Multiple Deprivation, has the highest death rate in Scotland from the virus.
