La COVID-19 ha expuesto, reproducido y creado nuevas desigualdades en Latinoamérica y el mundo. En este artículo introductorio discutimos el impacto que han tenido las desigualdades actuales en términos de la vulnerabilidad ante la COVID-19 y, a la vez, identificamos algunas nuevas y algunas inesperadas vulnerabilidades. Hacemos énfasis en aquellas relacionadas con la enfermedad, así como en las que existen en el plano de las políticas públicas y otras respuestas propias de la lucha contra la COVID-19. A partir de los planteamientos de Peter Hall y Michele Lamont sobre la resiliencia social, tomamos los artículos de esta edición especial para identificar el importante rol del Estado a la hora de abordar las vulnerabilidades y discutir los tipos de resiliencia social a los que han recurrido los grupos vulnerables en su respuesta a la COVID-19.
