Article: FMLM – Covid-19, racism and the equitable future of health and social care
By: Dr Trudy Foster, published 5th June 2020, FMLM News & Opinion
‘It was always going to take an event of seismic significance to supplant coronavirus in the media’s attention. The appalling death of George Floyd in the USA and the subsequent protests resounding around the world, has sadly been that event.
The coronavirus pandemic and the injustice of George Floyd’s death are completely different, but the severity of their impact is not and there are lessons for us all to learn from them.’
Dr Trudy Foster shares how our response to the pandemic and our moving forward needs to begin by acknowledging the different starting points and applying resources and interventions appropriately so we can reach a point of equality.
