Exercise Cygnus pandemic report (2016)

Cygnus

The Guardian has published a lightly redacted version of the Public Health England report on the 2016 Exercise Cygnus pandemic exercise. You’ll find a link in the article above, and we have also uploaded a copy to PAXsims.

Some 950 representatives of various UK government agencies and institutions took part in the exercise on 18-20 October 2016.  It found both strengths and significant deficiencies in pandemic preparedness.

The report contains a full description of the lessons learned, as well as details of exercise planning and format (Annex C).
