The Friday Report - Issue 5

Bulletin 22 | Matt Fletcher, Nicola Oliver and Andre Gaches

Every week, more is written on COVID-19 than any individual could possibly read. Collectively, the COVID-19 Actuaries Response Group read more about the outbreak than most, so we’ve decided each Friday to provide you with a curated list of the key papers and articles that we’ve looked at recently.

In this report:

  • The role of testing in COVID-19 control

  • Clinical characteristics and predictors of outcomes in hospitalised patients with COVID-19

  • The role of genes in COVID-19 symptoms

  • Features of hospitalised UK patients with COVID-19

  • IFS report on wider impacts of the pandemic on the NHS

  • Estimating the burden of United States workers exposed to infection or disease

  • Remdesivir in adults with severe COVID-19

  • Internet searches for unproven COVID-19 therapies in the United States

  • Analysis of SARS-CoV-2 viral load by patient age

  • Concern that a COVID-19 related inflammatory syndrome is emerging in children

  • ONS analysis by local area and socioeconomic deprivation

  • UK deaths in care homes and deaths from other causes
