Covid response and recovery in the UK for healthcare and life sciences

Free, Virtual Event (via Zoom)

25th of June 2020 Time 18.00 BST

 benrichardsonHarvard Club UK and Harvard Kennedy School London Alumni Network invite you to join us for a webinar about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the UK economy, public and private sectors, with a particular focus on the healthcare and life sciences industry.


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the world, causing disruption and dislocation for those who have been infected and transforming everyday life. The implementation of strict restrictions on movement and travel has made the UK go into a standstill, closing down schools and universities and forcing most people to work from home. In the UK, the economy has experienced a significant setback, driving the government into emergency mode. A rapid increase in the number of COVID cases has made the UK the fourth most infected country in the world, although the UK is now thought to have reached the peak of new daily cases.


A Zoom link will be sent to registered attendees via email prior to the event. Please include your email address and those of any guests when you register.
