In this talk, Dr Mark Green (University of Liverpool) will present how geospatial information was key for guiding and communicating decisions responding to COVID-19 in Liverpool. It will focus on two case studies working alongside stakeholders including Liverpool City Council and the Department of Health and Social Care.
First, it will consider how geography was key for evaluating the pilot for 'mass' testing in Liverpool. Results will demonstrate how accessibility to test sites was key for understanding inequalities in uptake, as well as how neighbourhood characteristics inform us about who was more or less likely to get tested. Second, timely findings will be presented on the roll-out of vaccines across Merseyside and Cheshire including how spatial patterns can help us target and improve uptake.
If you have a professional interest in how geospatial information is being used in the Covid-19 pandemic, or how local government can work with universities to build good evidence for rapid decision-making, you may be interested in joining the professional discussion that follows this lecture on 19 May.
This talk has been organised by the North West committee.
You will receive joining instructions for this event at 10.00am the day after making your booking, or 30 minutes prior to the event if you book on the day.
