Register to join Episode 39 'Behind the stats' on Zoom here.

In this episode Sir David Spiegelhalter FRS, Chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge and author of “The Art of Statistics”, will focus on the stats behind COVID-19, taking us through the good, the bad and the indifferent.

What are the risks of the virus? Can we ever safely compare our experiences with elsewhere? And given that nothing in life is ever safe, how can statistics help us out of the current crisis?

Sir David Spiegelhalter will be interviewed by Professor Sir Simon Wessely.
