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 of 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.
Emma is the first person to run across Africa from Henties Bay, Namibia to Pemba, Mozambique. In this talk, she shares the lessons learned on this and other adventures.
