• Health care workers- formal and informal:
• 70% are women
• Social norms and Care burden- formal and informal. Although men, the elderly, and persons with compromised immune systems may at be greatest risk of fatality from COVID-19, the greater caregiving role that women and girls are expected to perform may expose them to other consequences.
