Recovering from COVID-19

Staff from across The University of Manchester, led by Alliance MBS, are working with organisations around the UK and globally – including local government emergency planners and resilience officers - to develop successful plans for ensuring their recovery from COVID-19

The team includes academics and specialists in the areas of critical systems, emergency response, community resilience, humanitarian aid and mobilisation, digital solutions and security, viable systems, healthcare delivery and operations management.

The interdisciplinary team is synthesising international and national learning and carry out real-time research on the ground, which will lead to immediate impact as well as longer-term academic contributions. This work is built on existing partnerships, new networks, interdisciplinary collaboration, and a desire to make a difference.

We've written an overall blog which raises the challenges of recovery we have identified, while in the first of our blog series we look at the race to develop an app to help fight COVID-19. In our second blog we look at how the 'shielded' will be looked after once the UK lockdown is lifted.

We have written a short document outlining the key issues for recovery from COVID-19 which can be downloaded here >>

We produce the ‘Manchester briefing on COVID-19’ each week which brings together international lessons and examples which may prompt your thinking on response to, and recovery from, COVID-19. You can sign up to receive this below.
