This spring, the Young Fabians Communications, Economy and Finance, and Health Networks, are starting a series of dialogues looking at the effects of coronavirus on these three key policy areas.
As the virus begins to bite hard, we look at how government measures have either helped or impeded the UK’s preparedness for the crisis.
Beginning the series on the 14 April 2020, this triumvirate of networks will look at stockpiling from three angles.
Communications: How have the media worked, or not worked, in tandem with the government to try and suppress the act of stockpiling, which is distorting our economy as well as public health efforts?
Economy and Finance: What effects is the coronavirus outbreak having on people’s purchasing habits? And, crucially, what effect is stockpiling having on the supply and demand of food in the country and on agricultural food chains? We will also be analysing why stockpiling of items such as toilet papers has become common in recent times.
Health: What impact is stockpiling having on public health outcomes and how is it affecting the health of the most vulnerable in society?
Join us on the 14 April 2020 at 7pm via Zoom as we talk to experts across three areas via the following link:
