Publication: How COVID-19 Lockdown Measures — and Their Outcomes — Varied in Cities Around the World

Dahdaleh Institute Faculty Fellow Roger Keil and his colleagues have been studying the disparate responses to COVID-19 in Johannesburg, Toronto, and Chicago.

Their recent publication in The Conversation describes the impacts of different public health measures in these cities and their finding that lockdown measures have disproportionately afflicted those who are disadvantaged.

They conclude that if future lockdowns are necessary, “governments must consider more targeted approaches, put in place a support system to cushion the impact on vulnerable citizens and keep democratic ground rules in place.”
