Chair appointed to carry out review of government's handling of Covid-19

Kate Brunner will deliver a final report by the end of 2023

Government has appointed a chair of the independent review into the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kate Brunner QC will lead the project which will look into decisions made by the government between December 2019 and the end of September 2021.

She’ll then deliver a final report to Tynwald by the end of December 2023 - which will highlight areas for improvement to the way government deals with any future emergency response to a pandemic.

Ms Brunner will visit the Island in September to begin her review.

She said: “This will be an entirely independent process with a focus on drawing out lessons to be learned so that the Island can become even more resilient to any future pandemics or similar crises.

“I recognise the importance of hearing from individuals and groups about how they were affected as well as investigating government procedures and decision-making.  

“The first steps will involve recruiting a team and setting the methodology, and the anticipated timetable of evidence-gathering will be published as soon as possible.”
