COVID-19 Districts Prioritisation for Aid

By Anup Malani, Satej Soman, Stuti Sachdeva

With 15 million new cases confirmed since March, India is grappling with a second wave of COVID-19. While several vaccines in development have shown remarkable efficacy against the disease, scaling production and distribution will take time. As a result it may be 2-3 years before everyone in need is able to get vaccinated. This begs an immediate question of how governments should allocate vaccine doses across states and districts. Toward that end, we have developed a framework that takes available data on the status of the COVID pandemic and generated a district priority rank for aid. Click here to download the ranking data for all districts. A note on the methodogy is available here.
