DW News published this video item, entitled “How can special needs patients be better protected? | COVID-19 Special” – below is their description.
This pandemic has shown us how vulnerable we all are: Whether it’s India, where the number of cases is currently skyrocketing with over 300,000 new infections a day, or in Europe which has reported the highest death toll for a long time, and where vaccination is still very slow. Everywhere in the world, resources to fight the virus are limited. That is why there are priority lists for vaccination. First we must protect those most at risk. But are we really doing that? What about children? They’re way down at the bottom of any priority list. Besides, there’s not even a vaccine available for them yet. That leaves children with special needs especially vulnerable.DW News YouTube Channel
