The UK and the US have been heavily impacted by the coronavirus. But how many people have been affected? And what happens next? 

Through this webinar, expert actuaries highlighted how COVID-19 has directly and indirectly impacted on death rates in America and the UK. We learned who has been most susceptible to infection and death as well as what happens next.
