Coronavirus: The Whole Story


Why should you get tested for COVID-19?

Ep. 45

How is testing helping us address the pandemic? Why is it still important? Could the light at the end of the tunnel that we now glimpse be genuine this time?

Answers depend on the two pillars that underpin hope in the future - vaccines and testing. Host Vivienne Parry OBE is joined by guests who have been instrumental in testing programmes both here at UCL and across the country. We're going to be discussing the benefits of testing especially as the country is starting to reopen as well as the drawbacks.

Special guests: Becky Whitham, Sian Minett, and Prof Irene Petersen
