At this seminar, Dr Luke Munford, Lecturer in Health Economics at the University of Manchester, will present a talk titled 'It’s Grim Up North! Regional Inequalities in COVID-19'.
In March 2020, we were initially told that we were “all in it together” during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it quickly became apparent that this was not the case, and certain groups of people were more vulnerable than others.
In this talk, I will outline some regional differences in a number of outcomes during the first wave (March to July 2020). These outcomes will include mortality rates (all-cause and attributable to COVID-19), measures of mental health, as well as social and economic outcomes.
This work was part of a report for the NHSA and the Northern NIHR-ARCs: COVID Report (downloadable pdf)
New information relating to inequalities during the second wave (October 2020 onwards) will also be presented. The key takeaway is that the North was disproportionately hit, and urgent action is needed if ‘levelling-up’ really is a major aim of the government.
