We’ve heard a lot of talk about the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. Every day we wake up to find out something new: rapidly increasing numbers of death from the virus, solutions that no one can seem to agree on, the misinformation, the uncertainty of not knowing when this will be over. The one thing I don’t hear a lot of people mentioning is how the coronavirus drastically impacts low-income people.

WrestleMania had to be relocated to WWE's Performance Center in Florida because of government restrictions from COVID-19.

Our southern neighbor, Ohio, was originally slated to hold their elections on March 17, but following a testy battle involving Ohio’s Gov. Mike DeWine, Sec. of State Frank LaRose, Ohio’s leading health official Amy Acton, and the state’s supreme court, those in-person elections were postponed and replaced with an election run entirely by absentee votes and extending until April 27.

Mental healthcare in America has emerged as a subject about which a growing number of Americans are passionate. According to a study commissioned by Universal Health Services, Inc., around 71% of respondents indicated that one’s mental and physical health are of equal importance, and almost all of them (96.8%) said mental illness represents “legitimate medical illnesses."

After years of cuts to public health funding during the Obama and Trump administrations, the United States was primed to suffer at the hands of COVID-19 come early January. While funding has been approved to provide free testing and paid sick leave, 87 million Americans are still uninsured or underinsured.
