A year on from the first recorded cases of COVID-19, Professor Tim Spector will discuss how the virus has spread through the UK, and the success of the measures put in place to suppress it.

Lead scientist on the ZOE COVID Symptom Study app, Professor Spector has spent the year tracking the virus using symptom data inputted by 4.5m people across the country.

Using insights from the ‘largest community monitoring of COVID in the world’, Professor Spector will speak about the impact of national lockdowns, firebreaks, and the tier system.

He will also tell RSM President Professor Roger Kirby about his predictions for the vaccine roll-out, and whether we can expect a third wave in the new year.
