Some social groups occasionally (more often than others) face discriminatory treatment and need special attention to avoid potential infringement of their rights. Such communities are regarded as vulnerable groups.
The coronavirus pandemic has become particularly painful due to the fact that a significant number of citizens have lost the opportunity to fully enjoy a number of human rights, including the right to political life, right to participate in it (in a form of freedom of assembly, etc.), rights to health and education, and these citizens, not being vulnerable earlier, acquired such status during the pandemic.
