Rethinking the social role of ageing in the framework of COVID-19

  Date:
 Type: Webinar
 Line of Knowledge: 
 Location: Online

According to the data published so far, the pandemic caused by COVID-19 has severely affected older people, especially those living in residential centres. The vulnerability and poor prognosis of the disease in this population group has led to the implementation of more restrictive preventive measures of confinement, isolation and social distancing than in any other group, accompanied by ageist attitudes that are determinant in essential issues such as treatment or access to services by older people.
