Abstract

Socioeconomic and health inequities often contribute to a higher incidence of chronic health conditions among the most vulnerable. The COVID-19 pandemic has been no exception, with disadvantaged communities demonstrating higher infection rates, morbidity, and mortality in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This article discusses the relationships between social determinants of health and the prevalence of COVID-19.
