PANDA’s co-founder, Nick Hudson, was the keynote speaker at the March 2020 inaugural BizNews Investment Conference in South Africa. His talk negates the fear and gives clear reasons why the only thing to fear is fear itself in the story of the Covid-19 pandemic response.
PANDA conducted its first Online Open Science media briefing on February 23, 2021. This initiative reflects PANDA’s commitment to fill the urgent need for open scientific debate and prominent British media figures were in attendance. The topic was SARS-CoV-2 variants and the speakers at the event belong to the most renowned international scientific minds currently researching Covid-19.
History will record Covid-induced lockdowns as the product of pseudoscientific ideology, manifestations of an unprecedented mass hysteria and drummed-up fear.
Peter Castleden and Piet Streicher of PANDA unpack the modelling and predictions that PANDA made in 2020 with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. This retrospective look at what PANDA got right and wrong in the predictions also provides insight into how the models are made.
Doctor Denis Rancourt, from PANDA, examines COVID-19 with Dr Peter Breggin discussing the multiple measures being used during the pandemic, from wearing masks to washing our hands. They evaluate the counting of deaths and the testing for cases. Dr. Rancourt approaches these questions as an experienced scientist with a very broad general interest in the world and its affairs. They have one strong disagreement, but open science is about respecting and allowing unexpected opinions. A thoughtful, informed conversation.

PCR testing for COVID-19 aims to detect individuals with a high likelihood of being infectious. However, false positive test results lead to false diagnoses, unnecessary measures and distort the overall picture of the pandemic.
