Is it worth making investments that could (but probably won’t) halt the spread of COVID-19?

    Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/siteAcademic


    Is it worthwhile for governments to make investments that have a very small chance of curbing the spread of COVID-19? The authors take the hypothetical case of improving ventilation in schools, concluding that the benefits of avoiding lockdown are so great that even investments with a low probability of success are worth it.
