A rapid review of evidence on the technical considerations and societal implications of using technology to transition from the COVID-19 crisis
Governments around the world are beginning to look to data-driven technologies as tools
to support the transition from emergency lockdown measures in response to COVID-19.
There are three interlocking technical interventions being considered in the UK, as well

and the opening up of the economy.
