Why the COVID-19 Pandemic Has Brought Out the Worst in Some People

Dr Karim Bettache, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Monash University Malaysia

Why

The COVID-19 pandemic has often brought out the best in our society. From medical personnel working hard on the frontlines of the Coronavirus battlefield to communities working in unison to do their part in flattening the curve. However, the past couple of months have also highlighted the worst our society has to offer, with many instances of bigotry and discrimination in the form of racism, xenophobia and even homophobia. We discuss why the pandemic has brought out the worst in some people, with Dr Karim Bettache, Senior Lecturer in Psychology from Monash University Malaysia.
