COVID-19 creates immediate problems
for those living in ultra-poverty.
One day in quarantine means no income, which means no food for the day. And very few have friends or family that can help.
This makes social distancing impossible. The virus can rapidly spread because of proximity.
No medical help
Some live in such remote communities that if they contracted the virus there is no access to adequate medical help.
