A recent study published by the KOF (Swiss Economic Institute), and co-financed by E4S and the Federal Office of Public Health shows that inequalities have increased with the Covid-19 health crisis.

The economic impact of the COVID-​19 pandemic is being felt across all social strata. However, low-​income households are suffering particularly as a result of the coronavirus crisis, while those on high incomes are still managing comparatively well.
