“…Chatters et al showed that discrimination in access to medicine, vaccine and healthcare services may lead to higher prevalence of COVID-19 and the continuity of transmission chain of the pandemic at the community level [ 21 ]. Further, one study in Brazil found that the great heterogeneity in hospital capacity across the country posed an important challenge for resource allocation to patients during the pandemic [ 22 ]. The indicators of immigrant population (families who immigrated to Yazd and selected this city as the living place from the other provinces of Iran or other countries like Afghanistan and Iraq) and age showed significant correlation with the generated COVID-19 GIS maps.…”

Additionally, the social, economic and spatial inequalities can be seen in the city of Yazd, like many densely populated cities [ 22 ]. Yazd also had a high rate of prevalence of COVID-19 among the cities of Iran since the beginning of the disease [ 23 ].…”

“…Since scientific data and viewpoints of experts were considered in the development of the main social vulnerability indicators in COVID-19, remote sensing methods and GIS are the appropriate tools for mapping social vulnerability in the COVID-19 pandemic in the case of existing data related to social vulnerability indicators ( 1 , 16 , 44 ). The output of this study, in the form of a questionnaire, is hoped to be used by most disaster scholars and practitioners in this field to improve the recognition of more vulnerable areas and prioritize the distribution of resources to ensure equity for residents during COVID-19 and other probable epidemics in the future.…”
