COVID-19 Demography Evidence Summary No.1

14th May 2020
Author: Evert-jan Quak

This is the first of a weekly COVID-19 Demography Evidence Summary (DES) to signpost DFID and other UK government departments to the latest relevant evidence and discourse on COVID19 to inform and support their response. It is a result of 4 hours of work per week and is not intended to be a comprehensive summary of available evidence on COVID-19 but aims to make original documents easily accessible to decision-makers which, if relevant to them, they could refer to before making decisions. This DES looks specifically to the demographic indicators that impact on transmission/spreading and mortality rate, and the emerging policy advice on tailoring such responses to account for demographic indicators. This summary covers publications on Academic journal articles and research papers; Policy briefs, statements, tools & guidelines; Comments, Editorials, Opinions, Blogs & News; and Covid-19 Resource Hubs relevant for Demography
