Covid19 Pandemic Policy Monitor


Currently, we are facing a situation of a natural experiment, on European, national and regional level. Governmental authorities across and within countries in Europe, e.g. in the 16 federal states of Germany and their districts within, are taking different measures to contain the COVID-19 epidemic in different temporal sequences. Particularly relevant are closures of public institutions, e.g. schools, universities, or in the extreme case further measures that aim at social distancing in public spaces.

The Covid19 Pandemic Policy Monitor (Covid19-PPM) is building a database on various containment measures taken and their temporal sequence on national, state and/or district level in the EU27, the EEA and the UK. The resulting database will allow to track and analyse the effect of different measures taken in reducing the slope of the epidemiological curve of COVID-19, while controlling for other relevant factors across countries. In doing so, the research will examine the effectiveness in reducing the rise in incidence depending on the timing and combinations of interventions taken. Covid19-PPM is collaborating with Covid19 Health System Response Monitor (HSRM) of the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.

Further details can be found in our methods brief.
