Introduction – Coping with COVID-19

Epidemics can pose more than one kind of risk. The illness caused by infection poses a direct risk to every one of us. It also poses an indirect risk to our welfare if others who we normally rely on for goods, or services – or just for our normal social life – get too ill to play their part. Preventing infection directly addresses these issues.
