View the PANSOC webinar by Jord Hanus on epidemic mortality in Mechelen

On 22 April 2022 Jord Hanus presented recent EPIBEL work at a webinar of the OsloMet Centre for Research on Pandemics & Society (PANSOC), titled “Socioeconomic Status and Epidemic Mortality in an Urban Environment (Mechelen, Belgium): Were Dysentery (1794) and Cholera (1866) Socially Neutral Diseases?”.

The preliminary results show some marked differences in (social) mortality patterns between the dysenterty (1794) and cholera (1866) outbreaks, but overall suggest epidemic mortality was socially neutral, or even slightly progressive. More to follow soon!
