Abstract

Working out the trade-offs between saving lives and the economic damage of lockdown is complex. Marc Fleurbaey (Princeton), Hélène Fleurbaey (National Institute of Science and Technology) and Richard Bradley (LSE) have developed a model showing how different interventions can change the course of the pandemic. They conclude that the length of lockdown and early testing are crucial factors.
