Abstract

Infectious diseases are an age-old threat to human populations with the power to disrupt societies and cause considerable death and disability. With a focus on the current COVID19 pandemic, we will look at the public health approaches to tackling outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics. We will reflect on some of the emerging lessons learned, explore both the short- and longer-term impacts of this pandemic for the UK, and consider how the pandemic is likely to unfold in the coming years.
