      DescriptionWhen crisis hits, why are the most vulnerable sidelined? Since the COVID-19 outbreak, authorities haven't made adequate provision for disabled people, though many are more at risk of contagion in institutions. Better safeguards, championed by disability rights organizations, need to be implemented. Especially in uncertain times, as is currently the case in Ukraine.
