La estigmatización social asociada a la COVID-19

  • 24 February 2020

El actual brote de COVID-19 ha provocado estigmatización social y comportamientos discriminatorios contra personas de determinados orígenes étnicos, así como contra cualquier persona que se considere que ha estado en contacto con el virus.

La estigmatización puede socavar la cohesión social y provocar el aislamiento social de grupos de población, lo que podría contribuir a que las probabilidades de propagación del virus sean mayores, no menores. Esto puede dar lugar a problemas de salud más graves y a dificultades para controlar un brote de la enfermedad.
