ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

Alternate Title: 2021: The COVID-19 Pandemic

From the Introduction: "The 2021 Annual Report will focus on the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and its implications for life expectancy, with a definite emphasis on the UK situation but without losing sight of the global picture. The aim is to condense a variety of useful, unbiased information into one convenient reference guide that the target audience may use to better understand and navigate their responsibilities in a domain of great uncertainty. The Report will firstly provide an overview of the current state of the pandemic, with a focus on the UK situation within the global context. We will then summarise the development and deployment of vaccines and treatments for COVID-19, and the behavioural insights we gained from the social change brought on by the pandemic. We will devote one chapter to the economic fallout of the pandemic in the UK and its effect on pre-existing social inequalities. One chapter will focus on how COVID-19 has affected the NHS and the social care system. Lastly, we will summarise the development and adoption of new technologies in healthcare in the wake of the pandemic."
