Digital Diffusion and Covid Vaccine


Matteo Mazzarano (Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei; Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Brescia)


Digitalization is a complex phenomenon, affecting Europe in several manners. This brief comments on the link between digitalization and first results in vaccination programs against the Covid-19 pandemic across EU27+UK. In several cases, it has been noted that without digitalization, the response to the pandemic event would have hit harder the population’s welfare. There are several ways to measure diffusion. Many studies used the percentage of the population having access to internet services. Others used the number of hours used in the internet-related activity. In this work, we will employ the number of digital gadgets within a nation averaged by the population. To present the structural impact that the diffusion of Digital gadgets has had on the selected nations, we will present its relation with the Human Development Index and the specialization rate of the workforce.
