COVID-19 Demography Evidence Summary No.6

18th June 2020
Author: Evert-jan Quak

This is the sixth 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 COVID-19 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 decisionmakers which, if relevant to them, they could refer to before making decisions. The scope of DES has been broadened from this week on by including evidence on how COVID-19 impacts on demographic indicators, with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa. Also, DES continues to look to the demographic indicators that impact on transmission/spreading and mortality rate, and the emerging evidence and 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; COVID-19 Data hubs relevant for Demography; and COVID-19 Resource hubs relevant for Demography
