Free things to do in Manchester this weekend ft. Pandemic Outbreak! + more

This year’s ESRC Festival of Social Science wraps up at the weekend, but there’s still a couple of individual events to get your teeth stuck into. Of particular interest is this workshop at John Rylands Library on Friday afternoon, which aims to expound the methods of a disease pandemic control. Marking 100 years since the real-life influenza pandemic, which claimed more lives than World War One, this event takes you through current toolsets and methods for tracking and containing outbreaks, looking not just at the control of outbreak, but at dealing with related consequences of disease control.
Fri 9 Nov, The John Rylands Library, 150 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 3EH, 2pm – 3pm, www.esrcmanchesterfest.ac.uk
