Coronavirus: ‘The disease is not a great leveller’: Emily Maitlis praised for frank assessment of social impacts of coronavirus

‘The disease is not a great leveller’: Emily Maitlis praised for frank assessment of social impacts of coronavirus [LINK].

“The disease is not a great leveller, the consequences of which everyone – rich or poor – suffers the same,” the 49-year-old said.

“This is a myth which needs debunking.

They are more likely to catch the disease because they are more exposed.”
