At first glance, the novel coronavirus appears to choose its victims mercilessly and without discrimination. As of June 24th, the 9.1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 473,000 deaths have touched all continents except Antarctica. COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, has afflicted the indigent, the imprisoned, and the elderly as well as princes, prime ministers, and professional basketball players. The economic and social havoc produced by the pandemic has affected people of all ages, genders, ethno-racial identities, and classes, from restaurant workers recently laid off to homebound kindergarteners required to learn through Zoom.
