This podcast is dedicated to the one thing that's been on everybody's mind for the last few weeks: the coronavirus. We report on our conversation with Julia Gog, an epidemiologist who has been informing the Science Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), talk to David Spiegelhalter, Chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication, about how to communicate science during a crisis, and explore the maths of herd immunity in one minute.
