About this episode
The number of deaths from Covid-19 in the UK was at one point the highest among European countries. To better understand this, Dr Filipa Sá at King’s College London combined data on the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases and the number of deaths from Covid-19 per 100,000 people for local areas in England and Wales with socioeconomic data to explore the factors influencing the numbers of infections and deaths.
