The Vulnerable: Unprotected in a Pandemic

The Associated Press reports from all over the world on how the novel coronavirus outbreak is affecting the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. These stories will focus on both poor countries and on the poor within wealthy countries such as the United States. 

Through in-depth data investigations and narratives, these stories will show how the pandemic impacts countries and communities already ravaged by other diseases, famine, civil war, repressive governments, or no government. Many of these places have been through crisis upon crisis, and do not have the infrastructure or health care system to cope with the onslaught of the virus.
