Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The COVID-19 pandemic is not only a significant public health crisis, but also has considerable economic and social ramifications which are likely to continue long after infection and mortality rates have declined. While the health consequences of the virus are severe, the pandemic also has broader socioeconomic consequences arising partly from the curtailment of social and economic activity under ‘lockdown’ measures put in place to contain the spread of infection. Australia has experienced health impacts such as illness, hospitalisation and mortality at a smaller scale than in some other countries, casting the socioeconomic impacts of the pandemic into sharper relief.
