Is the government striking the right balance between saving lives and the health of our economy? What lessons can we learn from overseas as other nations lift restrictions? What are the implications of Covid-19 on our civil liberties, 11 weeks into lockdown? Does epidemiological modelling take into account human behaviour?

IEA Director General Mark Littlewood will be joined by the economist and author Paul Ormerod, IEA Head of Lifestyle Economics Christopher Snowdon, and Tom Whipple, The Times Science Editor for a thought-provoking discussion on the science, civil liberties and economics of Coronavirus.

This event will be live streamed on the IEA’s YouTube channel.
