About this session:
This lecture presents new projections by the Penn Wharton BudgetModel of key health and economic variables associated with relaxing mandatory social distancing policies that were enacted in response to COVID-19. PWBM’s new integrated economics and epidemiological model uses detailed health and economics data to project health and economic outcomes across U.S. states associated with a range of policy bundles that ease social distancing rules.
