The critical situation we all find ourselves in as a result of the coronavirus particularly affects society’s most disadvantaged groups. During a health crisis of this magnitude, poverty is a variable that exposes those suffering it to the negative effects of the COVID-19 disease, leading to a greater risk of infection and death.

According to national reports, it is estimated that 150 million people worldwide, 2% of the world population, may be homeless. The emergence of coronavirus has increased their vulnerability, requiring new measures to protect this population.
