Data scientists from ADR Wales are currently undertaking a collection of rapid response projects related to the Covid-19 pandemic. These projects are looking at the experiences of those that have been placed on the shielded list in Wales and those that live with a shielded individual, in particular their interactions with health services prior to and during the shielding period.
Shielding teachers and teaching assistants during the pandemic in June 2020 (published July 2020)
Children living in shielded households in June 2020 (published August 2020)
Shielded patients’ access to private outdoor space in June 2020 (published August 2020)
Composition and characteristics of shielded households in July 2020 (published November 2020)
Findings from this work are directly informing the One Wales response to Covid-19, which regularly feeds into Wales Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and UK SAGE updates.
