  • Location: Zoom
  • Speaker: Dr Christina Li

 In January 2020, China began an unprecedented move in public health history with the lockdown of Wuhan as the outbreak of COVID-19 continued to gather pace. Beijing would record its first outbreak in the middle of that month before city-wide travel restrictions alongside other lockdown measures followed, with hundreds of millions affected by measures throughout China. Almost two years on, billions across the planet, many in world’s greatest cities, have also been affected by such measures. Beijing, having emerged out of lockdown in May 2020 provides crucial evidence for what the impacts will be on these vast urban centres.

Dr Christina Li will cover the spatial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic through the lens of intra-city population and house rent changes in Beijing, China. The results show that the pandemic has led to decentralisation of residents and flattened the housing bid-rent curve in Beijing. Key mechanisms of these changes are identified through regression analysis and spatial equilibrium modelling.
