The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has brought health and health inequalities into sharp focus. It has been clear from the early stages of the pandemic that some groups are more affected than others.

Those facing the greatest deprivation are at higher risk of catching and dying from the virus. Factors such as age, ethnicity, gender and socioeconomic circumstance all contribute to how people are impacted.

This blog series rounds up emerging evidence on the unequal impact of the pandemic and the wider governmental and societal response in the UK. We explore key themes emerging from recent work and, as we move towards recovery, we consider the role government, society and businesses have to play in allowing everyone to live a healthy life.
