RSS Covid-19 Task Force: Latest news

**Page updated 11-09-2020**

The RSS has a task force to marshal and promote, at a high level, the Society's expertise relevant to the Covid-19 crisis. Founded by RSS president elect, Professor Sylvia Richardson CBE, she co-chairs the initiative with RSS past president Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter OBE, and is supported by a steering group. 

More information on the Task Force, and information on how to get involved, is now on our dedicated page

The initiative was first proposed at the RSS Council meeting in March 2020 and followed our statement regarding the Covid-19 pandemic in which RSS's President, Professor Deborah Ashby, acknowledged that 'the statistical community has a key role to play'.

A key aim of the task force is to ensure that the RSS can contribute its collective expertise to UK national and devolved governments and public bodies, regarding statistical issues during the Covid-19 pandemic.
