Project Restart should be more frank over conflict between health and economics, says professor

Lurking within every Premier League statement about ‘Project Restart’ is a supposedly comforting reference to their “priority” of health and safety.

Can behavioural science slow the spread of Covid-19?

“Epidemiologists have been driving policy, which is great, but we need to know other impacts beyond the number of people infected and the care they need. There is a lot of science, such as risk analysis, that hasn’t been included in this debate."

The data that shows economic recovery requires more than reopening shops

“Covid-19 is a classic example of a high perceived risk. Any policy has to deal with both perceived and actual risk and understand why people are feeling afraid. “You cannot open the economy and expect activity to resume at steady levels, because there

“There are a lot of parallels between health threats and security threats, like terrorism. And one thing we know about these kinds of threats is that the perceived risk is very high. Both because it is dreadful, the fear of dreadful consequences, but also because of the unknown caused by an emerging disease and so not only you have actual risks but also perceived risks that play a role and while you can manage actual risks, we have to just try to also manage those passive risks”

“The health capabilities of the current system, the American system, the Western European system is mainly focused on chronic diseases and I think we could learn from the mediator on how to be prepared against infectious diseases. Pandemics, endemics, and everything that capacity planning can provide us. So that’s the second issue.”
