Young people, lifting lockdowns, USA and Kenya updates

International experts take a look at the science surrounding Covid-19

Claudia Hammond and a panel of international experts look at the latest research into Covid-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus which is sweeping through the world.

As the disease spreads, younger people have perhaps not been getting the attention they deserve. How will this pandemic impact young people and do they feel included in government messaging?

As lockdowns are lifted in China – how can they prepare for what comes next?

And country updates on the USA and Kenya.

On the panel are Professor Tom Kariuki, Director of Programmes of the African Academy of Sciences, Dr Christina Atchison, Senior Clinical Teaching Fellow in Public Health Education at Imperial College London and Dr. Michael Mina, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health.

The Evidence is made in collaboration with the Wellcome Collection.
