Recorded on Thursday 17 June 2021, as part of the Royal Society of Medicine’s COVID-19 Series.
This episode takes a closer look at the Covid delta variant and its threat to the end of restrictions. Professor Roger Kirby is joined by two leading epidemiologists and modellers – Professor Graham Medley, Chair of SPI-M, and Professor Neil Ferguson, Director of J-IDEA and the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis – both of who have been key figures in advising the government’s response throughout the pandemic.
They discuss the current picture in the UK, the threat the delta variant poses as mass vaccination continues nationwide, and what the future might hold for the end of restrictions.
The RSM COVID-19 Series is for health professionals, by health professionals; a series of talks dedicated to give healthcare workers on the frontline, regular and easy-to-access updates from healthcare leaders on COVID-19.
