Coronavirus (COVID-19) Scotland's Strategic Framework update – February 2022: evidence paper
This evidence paper accompanies the Strategic Framework update and provides an overview of the key analysis and evidence underpinning the Framework, published on 22 February 2022.
1. Outline of the paper
The purpose of this evidence paper is to provide an overview of the key analysis and evidence underpinning the latest refresh of the Strategic Framework.
The paper is split into two main sections. The first section establishes the current position across all four harms as previously identified in the December 2020 paper “Framework for decision making – assessing the four harms of the crisis”. The second section of the paper looks forward presenting the latest evidence underpinning the approaches proposed in the updated Strategic Framework for managing the epidemic as it moves into the next stage. It then sets out 4 plausible futures to illustrate how the future may unfold. Finally the paper considers how the epidemic could be monitored and reported in the future.
