Abstract
COVID-19 epidemic beyond the health status of the global society and economy has been experiencing a major challenge. Ensuring that the needs of female nurses and doctors are integrated into each of the response efforts is critical today. Women are constantly undergoing this process as volunteers from different communities, health professionals, scientists, transport and supply managers and many more. They are most at risk of infection and livelihood. COVID-19 focuses on the global growth of domestic violence in the health crisis and increases gender inequality around the world. Lockdowns and consistent measures around the world have increased women's workload as well as stress as more people have taken care of house arrest, having to unpaid work around six hours a day, and women's responsibilities have increased as children's schools and child care services have closed. It also causes emotional and physical abuse, resulting in fetal death or abnormalities during pregnancy. COVID-19 has also created huge challenges in border management, migration and service issues; making the humanitarian protection of families, adults and asylum-seeking children even more important. As a result of this epidemic, children are being exploited by finding food and money on the streets. However, most studies investigating racial and ethnic discrimination in hospital patients have been focused on. It is not yet known whether such inequalities are driven by smoking and alcohol use, geographical location or urban vs. rural settlements, at least in terms of differences in underlying health conditions.
