Abstract

Abstract The advance of the COVID-19 pandemic expresses multiple territorial dimensions. The following analysis, about the data released on notified cases and deaths, allow us to raise interpretations that relate the evolution of the pandemic with the inequalities already present in the São Paulo urban space and with the different existing conditions to adhere to isolation. This article presents reviews that dialogues with the perspective of environmental justice, discussing some impacts of territorial inequalities on the life and death of São Paulo residents, such as the distribution of urban characteristics, work, comorbidities, access to health equipment, and race, that maintains a center periphery pattern. As it is an observation of an ongoing case, it is an exploratory study, with open hypotheses. (AU)
