Resumen

We analyse changes in mobility following the implementation of containment measures aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in Bogotá, Colombia. We characterise the mobility network before and during the pandemic and analyse its evolution and changes between January and July 2020. We then link the observed changes to socioeconomic conditions of the population estimating correlations and a gravity model to assess the effect of socioeconomic conditions on mobility flows. We observe an overall reduction in mobility trends, but the connectivity between different areas of the city remains after the lockdown. We find that the responses to lockdown policies depend on socioeconomic conditions. Before the pandemic, the population with better socioeconomic conditions shows higher mobility flows. Since the lockdown, mobility presents a general decrease, but the population with lower socioeconomic conditions shows a lower decrease in its mobility flows. Finally, we derive policy implications.
