    Continued confinement of those most vulnerable to COVID-19—e.g., the elderly, those with chronic diseases and other risk factors—is presented as an uncontroversial measure when planning exit strategies from lockdown measures. Policies for deconfinement assume that these persons will remain confined even when others will not.

    Human and Nonhuman Animals, Mutually at Risk: A Study of the Swiss Information Media.Annik Dubied Losa & Claudine Burton-Jeangros - 2011 - Society and Animals 19 (4):337-355.
    Nowadays, relationships between nonhuman animals and humans are debated, often in relation to issues associated with the risks they represent for each other. On the one hand, new diseases and accidents indicate that animals are not as innocuous as they were long thought; on the other hand, the now questioned human impact on the natural environment is considered a risk for animals.
