Zusammenfassung

Die in Ländern mit niedrigem und mittlerem Einkommen (LMICs) vorherrschenden Bedingungen, zum Beispiel ein schlechter Gesundheitszustand der Bevölkerung und eine unzureichende Gesundheitsinfrastruktur, können dort enorme menschliche und wirtschaftliche Schäden eines Covid-19-Ausbruchs hervorrufen. Aus diesem Grund haben LMICs mehrere präventive Maßnahmen ergriffen und folgen dabei häufig der Politik von Ländern mit hohem Einkommen. Unterschiede in der Zusammensetzung der Erwerbsbevölkerung, im Zugang zu sozialer Sicherheit und in den Lebensbedingungen könnten jedoch bedeuten, dass diese Maßnahmen für LMICs nicht geeignet sind. Nitya Mittal, Rupa Viswanath und Sebastian Vollmer untersuchen die in LMICs vorherrschenden Bedingungen, die sich auf die Morbidität und Mortalität im Zuge eines Covid-19-Ausbruchs auswirken könnten, und erörtern die Eignung der weit verbreiteten Präventionsmaßnahmen für LMICs.
