Covid cases have dropped 77% in six weeks in the United States. Experts should level with the public about the good news.
PANDA’s Dr Clare Craig from the UK in conversation with Nick Hudson.
Clare is a diagnostic pathologist who has looked into the UK’s Covid testing strategy in great detail. In her own words she is a lover of data, digital pathology and AI, sceptical but optimistic.
We must all be wary of a second wave being manufactured by increases in testing that are presented to us as an increase in cases. It is foolhardy to focus our attention on one disease alone instead of the overall impact of policy choices we make. When we do focus on one disease alone, we should certainly not focus on positive tests but rather on death and hospitalisation data.
