Addressing disability rights during COVID-19

S1 E9 41 MINS

On this episode of #DearWorldLive, we take a look at the new barriers that people with disabilities are facing with the global coronavirus pandemic.

Many people with disabilities are facing new challenges in the global coronavirus pandemic: Some people are more vulnerable due to underlying health conditions, and people who need full-time care find that physical distancing is all but impossible. On April 28th’s episode of #DearWorldLive, we were joined by actress and comedian Maysoon Zayid and five-time Paralympic athlete Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, who discussed what the pandemic means for the disability community.

#DearWorldLive is a new online discussion show from Doha Debates, hosted by Doha Debates’ correspondent and Course Correction host Nelufar Hedayat. Each weekly episode focuses on a different aspect of the coronavirus and its impact on our lives and our world.
