The coronavirus poses many dangers for people with disabilities, especially if medical resources become overwhelmed and hospitals need to decide who gets ventilators. Policies in 25 states would ration care in ways disability advocates have denounced, a Center for Public Integrity analysis shows.
Now, Public Integrity wants to make sure discrimination is brought to light. If you have witnessed discrimination against a person with disabilities at a medical facility, or know something about official rationing policies, we want to hear from you.
