Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic and the Blitz both exposed the civilian population to a sustained threat. Risk, whether from exposure to viral load or the density of the bombing, led to a range of protective measures and behavioural regulations being implemented. Edgar Jones (King’s College London) outlines key policy lessons from the 1939-45 experience that may prove useful today.
