Public health specialists who sit on SAGE, independent SAGE or have won awards in their field talk to SKWAWKBOX about coronavirus, variants, the tier system and more
Tonight’s Skwawk Talk on Socialist Telly will look at the latest developments in the COVID pandemic, which has seen large parts of the country enter the new ‘Tier 4’ just before Christmas based on Boris Johnson’s claim that a ‘new mutant variant’ of the virus is spreading faster, causing a growing number of other countries to close their borders to UK travellers.
The programme will feature three of the UK’s leading health specialists and campaigners: health psychology specialist and member of both the SAGE and Independent SAGE committees Prof Susan Michie; Professor of Health and Wellbeing Dr Kailash Chand OBE; public health specialist, Independent SAGE founder member and former World Health Organisation director Prof Gabriel Scally.
Watch below for a flavour of what’s in store:
