Kikuchi, S, S Kitao and M Mikoshiba (2020), “Heterogeneous Vulnerability to the COVID-19 Crisis and Implications for Inequality in Japan”, RIETI Discussion Paper.
We study how the COVID-19 crisis could affect earnings inequality across heterogeneous individuals in Japan. We use the Employment Status Survey (ESS) to identify groups of individuals who are more vulnerable to the COVID-19 shocks, which likely affect workers in different industries, occupations, and employment types in different magnitude. We assess the impact using various data and early evidence including expenditures data from the JCB Consumption NOW during the first weeks of the pandemic. Our study identifies significant heterogeneity in vulnerability to the COVID-19 shocks across workers of different types. We find that the crisis will hit low-income groups by more and is likely to significantly exacerbate inequality through multiple channels, calling for urgent and large-scale assistance targeted towards affected individuals.

(“Collapse of medical facilities can be expected to occur on April 26 if no lockdown occurs. The total number of deaths can be expected to be half a million people. If a lockdown were enacted from April 6, and if more than 60% of trips outside the home were restricted voluntarily, then a collapse of medical facilities could be avoided.”)

Why is Denmark's coronavirus lockdown so much tougher than Sweden's?
(Christian Wejse, an epidemiologist at Aarhus University: "I'm a fan. I think we have a brave government and they've been ready to respond very quickly and in a very dramatic manner, even though the consequences are grave in terms of the economy," he told The Local. "I think what applies here is the old saying, 'if you think preventing disease is expensive: try disease'.")

Age specificity of cases and attack rate of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Kenji Mizumoto (Kyoto University), Ryosuke Omori (Hokkaido University), Hiroshi Nishiura (Hokkaido University)
(“We examined the age distribution of COVID-19 cases in Japan from January to March, 2020. Children are less likely to be diagnosed as cases, and moreover, the risk of disease given exposure among children appears to be low. Both the overall risk and the conditional risk of disease given exposure are likely to be the highest among adults aged from 50-69 years. The most plausible explanation that we believe is immune imprinting to a similar virus among adults”).

The effect of travel restrictions on the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
Matteo Chinazzi (Northeastern University, Boston) et al.
(“…The model is calibrated based on internationally reported cases, and shows that at the start of the travel ban from Wuhan on 23 January 2020, most Chinese cities had already received many infected travellers. … before the travel ban ≈86% of the internationally imported cases originated from Wuhan. After the travel ban, the top 10 contributors to the relative risk are needed to account for at least ≈80% of the internationally imported cases where the top three contributors are: Shanghai (28.1%), Beijing (14%), and Shenzhen (12.8%). In terms of relative risk of importation, the countries at higher risk of importation after the implementation of the Wuhan travel ban are: Japan (11% pre-travel ban, 13.9% post-travel ban), Thailand (22.8% pre-travel ban, 13% post-travel ban), Republic of Korea (7.4% pre-travel ban, 11.3% post-travel ban), Taiwan (9.5% pre-travel ban, 10% post-travel ban), and USA (4.7% pre-travel ban, 5.7% post-travel ban….”)
