This article explores the impact of the first year of lockdown on the UK nations. It highlights the impact of the social determinants of health before exploring other areas where the virus affected large numbers of the population. Discussion of economic and psycho-social phenomena indicates that there are no obvious conclusions and that it may be many years before we understand the true consequences of lockdown. Particular attention is given to the experience of the Jewish community.
