The Covid-19 pandemic has widened some existing inequalities and opened up new divides. Sector shutdowns, social distancing measures and school closures have disproportionately affected certain parts of the population, and the health impacts of the virus have not been evenly spread.
At this event, IFS researchers discussed how Covid-19 has interacted with existing inequalities and consider the potential long-term legacy of the pandemic on inequality. You can watch the video below, and download the slides here.
This event is part of Inequality: The IFS Deaton Review, an IFS initiative funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
