    No single solution will stop the virus’s spread, but combining different layers of public measures and personal actions can make a big difference. It’s im­por­tant to un­der­stand that a vac­cine, on its own, won’t be enough to rapidly ex­tin­guish a pan­demic as per­ni­cious as Covid-19. The pan­demic can­not be stopped through just one in­ter­ven­tion, be­cause even vac­cines are im­per­fect. Once in­tro­duced into the hu­man pop­u­la­tion, viruses con­tinue to cir­cu­late among us for a long time. Fur­ther­more, it’s likely to be as long as a year be­fore a Covid-19 vac­cine is in wide-spread use, given in­evitable dif­fi­cul­ties with man­u­fac­tur­ing, dis­tri­b­u­tion and pub­lic ac­ceptance. Con­trol­ling Covid-19 will take a good deal more than a vac­cine. For at least an­other year, the world will have to rely on a mul­ti­pronged ap­proach, one that goes be­yond sim­plis­tic bro­mides and all-or-noth­ing re­sponses. In­di­vid­u­als, work-places and gov­ern­ments will need to con­sider a di­verse and some­times dis­rup­tive range of in­ter­ven­tions. It helps to think of these in terms of lay­ers of de­fence, with each layer pro­vid­ing a bar­rier that isn’t fully im­per­vi­ous, like slices of Swiss cheese in a stack. The ‘Swiss cheese model’ is a clas­sic way to con­cep­tu­al­ize deal­ing with a haz­ard that in­volves a mix­ture of hu­man, tech­no­log­i­cal and nat­ural el­e­ments. This article can be read in full on the WSJ website, but is paywalled. The illustration showing the swiss cheese pandemic model is hyperlinked to this hub Learn post.

    The risk of dying from coronavirus is more than twice as great in the most deprived areas of England – with the disparity largest for women, analysis shows. A study by the Health Foundation of deaths from COVID-19 showed women in the most deprived parts of the country had a risk of dying that was 133% higher than those in the least deprived neighbourhoods. Between men the difference in risk was 114% higher in worse-off areas, suggesting that while deprivation is a key factor in risk of death from coronavirus for both sexes, its effect is worse for women. Experts say the evidence shows the impact of COVID-19 is falling disproportionately on the poorest in society. Mai Stafford, principal data analyst at the Health Foundation, told The Independent: “This pandemic could and should be a watershed moment in creating the social and political will to build a society that values everyone’s health now and in the long term. Without significant action, there is a real risk that those facing the most disadvantage will eventually pay the highest price.” Read full story Source: The Independent, 21 May 2020
