Abstract

The current pandemic is a fast moving sequence of events structured around the rate at which human populations become infected through social contact. We chart the pandemic in the UK, showing how the first wave (April 2020) was flat-tened by lockdown through social distancing and working from home. The pandemic reasserted itself in a second wave morphing into a third in December 2020. We examine trajectories relating to how mobility is suppressed by working from home, social dis-tancing, and household mixing. Lastly we explore how key workers commute between different tiers, testing the resilience of the lockdown to spatial interactions.
