A Global Health Crisis

COVID-19 is above all a health crisis – by the end of June, more than half a million people worldwide had lost their lives to the virus. This section looks in detail at the impact of COVID-19 – the strain the virus is putting on our healthcare systems, how it is affecting, in particular, the elderly and those with pre-existing illnesses, the consequences of lockdown measures for our mental health, and how we may be able to use technology to advance new treatments and improve diagnosis.
