Dear all

The University of Oxford has done us all a great favour by building the OxCGRT database with its stringency index, etc.

On the other hand, having had a look at it for a few days, I consider the database to be fundamentally deficient in its design, but also that there are ways by which some elements of the database can be used meaningfully – and have suggested a couple of examples/options:

and

I’d be delighted to receive critical comments on my initial findings – particularly from those who have used the database – to inform further exploration. Criticism of my initial findings would be most appreciated.
