Covid public health - Data is fundamental The BMJ Podcast

    • Science

As the pandemic play out, we’ve seen ways in which the collection of covid data - and it’s sharing, has been flawed, with reports in the UK that local authorities haven't got granular data, and in the US that the CDC is being circumvented for data reporting.

Kathleen Bachynski, assistant professor of public health at Muhlenburgh College, and Sridhar Venkatapuram, director of global health education & training at King's College London join us to discuss why data is fundamental to the social contract between the public and their government, and why undermining it is so dangerous.
