People’s Covid Inquiry | Session 3: Did they adopt the right strategy?

24th March 2021 - 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Amid increasing criticism of the UK Government for its handling of the pandemic and parallel calls from civil society for the adoption of a ‘Zero Covid’ strategy, our inquiry asks: what does ‘Zero Covid’ mean and is it possible, or has the Government really done the best it can? Is it possible to protect the population and protect the economy at the same time? Did the prospect of an effective vaccine side-line effective test, trace and isolate?
Session witnesses:
  • Professor Anthony Costello Professor of Global Health and Sustainable Development, University College London; former Director at WHO, member of Independent SAGE
  • Professor Michael Baker – Department of Public Health, University of Otago, New Zealand
  • Rehana Azam – National Secretary, GMB Union

People’s Covid Inquiry Panel:
