The House of Commons Library and the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) have published a range of materials which you may find interesting during this period:


What do we know about Covid-19? What is the mortality rate, the doubling time and other key epidemiology terms?


How can social interventions like school closures and the ban of mass gatherings help fight Covid-19? How effective are these measures and how long should they be in place for?


A breakdown of the current efforts to develop a vaccine for Covid-19. Who is working on a vaccine? When might one become available to the public?

See our coronavirus page for further briefings on topics like business, travel, policing and more. The page will be regularly updated but as this is a fast-moving issue, each piece should be read as accurate at the time of publication.
