LSHTM Webinar on disabled people in the UK and the impact of COVID-19
27 April, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed our lives over the last year. Certain groups are affected more than others, both in terms of risk of death and serious illness and as a consequence of living under lockdown and other restrictions. In this seminar, Professors Tom Shakespeare and Hannah Kuper will consider whether the 14 million disabled people in the UK are a particularly impacted group.
Webinar: Tuesday 27 April 2021 13:00-14:00
Hannah Kuper’s presentation will include a study of the risk of COVID-19 related hospital admission and death among people with learning disability in collaboration with Elizabeth Williamson, HPRU-researcher Helen McDonald, and the OpenSAFELY collaboration. More details of the study are available here. (This is a pre-print which has not been peer-reviewed).
The webinar is free and open to all. No registration is required.
