covid-19

An urgent call has gone out to the scientific modelling community to help fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Two Cambridge mathematicians are helping to lead the charge.

How do mathematical models of COVID-19 work and should we believe them? We talk to an epidemiologist, who has been working flat out to inform the government, to find out more.

How should people arrange themselves for maximal socialising at a safe distance?

David Spiegelhalter, expert in risk and evidence communication, tells us how well the UK government has done so far communicating about Covid-19.

A new study into Covid-19 suggests that flattening the curve will take longer and harder measures than previously hoped.

As the world prepares for the worst, we explore the maths that can help us stop a pandemic.
