Abstract

The world is often said to have prepared for the wrong kind of pandemic, anticipating a new strain of influenza. In fact, says Celia Blanco-Jimenez (LSE), a number of plans were in place for the rapid spread of a respiratory disease. But none anticipated that lockdowns or travel restrictions would be put in place.
