Covid-19’s myriad and unprecedented impacts on our way of life mean that future A-level and GCSE geography specifications will doubtless be packed with references to the pandemic and its geographical implications at both local and global scales. We will all be learning about ‘post-Covid’ geography in one form or another for many years and decades to come.
In this column we explore possible ways in which current students can establish synoptic links between the ‘geography-in-the-news’ topic of Covid-19 and their classroom studies of both Global Systems and Changing Places (some readers will additionally be studying the geography of disease as a taught component of their OCR or International Baccalaureate course). Figure 1 provides an outline of some important topic connections.
