The last few months have brought many challenges: for health personnel, who provide their services in difficult circumstances, and go to work in fear of taking COVID-19 home; for students, who have had to adapt to distance classes, with little contact with teachers and classmates, and full of anxiety about their future; for workers, whose livelihoods are threatened; for the vast number of people trapped in poverty or in fragile humanitarian settings with very little protection against COVID-19; and for people with mental health conditions,many of which are even more socially isolated than before.
