Abstract

This research focuses on Covid-19 and the way it has impacted the lives of disabled people, majorly negative. Covid-19 hasn’t been kind to anyone; everyone is affected because of it. But the disabled people who didn’t already have the best amenities of life were affected the most. As the coronavirus took the world and everyone in it by surprise, the disabled people faced the worse than all. They felt abandoned since the attention to their care took a fall and became even less than it was before. With all this, came the trouble to get the essentials and groceries by themselves, especially for the disabled women (Lucy Webster, BBC News, 2020). All of them are living in a greater fear since they are at a higher risk than all others. With the help of this essay, I aim to highlight the problems faced by the least fortunate of the community in these deadly times. And this essay will mainly focus on the lifestyle of disabled people in the current times and the design and planning of urban areas to bring to light the fact that the urban areas aren’t effective in terms of the proper care of the disabled people.
