A new study points to several underlying factors that together have resulted in higher levels of infection and mortality in vulnerable areas. Structural factors and inequality have played more of a role than language difficulties and cultural background. These factors make it difficult, and in some cases impossible, for residents to follow the guidelines. In this discussion, researchers will present the findings of the study and representatives from areas of the Nordic Region with dense immigrant populations will provide their views on the report and share their experiences of the pandemic. We will also hear from representatives from the Nordic public authorities that are responsible for combatting housing segregation. What lessons can we learn for future pandemics and the future in general?
