• Amnesty International: COVID-19 Amplified Inequalities

The human rights group Amnesty International says the coronavirus pandemic has brutally exposed and deepened inequalities around the world.

Its annual report said the worst impact has been on the most vulnerable people, including migrants.

The BBC's Paul Adams has more.


Amnesty says those already marginalized, including women and refugees, have borne the brunt.

Health and migrant workers have not been supported, and data showing an increase in domestic abuse in the U.K. is echoed in statistics from across the world.

Gender-based violence has risen, exacerbated by the difficulties faced by victims isolated with their abusers.

The report also highlights what it says are efforts to exploit the crisis to undermine human rights.

Leaders in Hungary and the Gulf, it says, have introduced new laws against spreading false news, and China's persecution of its Uyghur population has increased.
