Register to join Episode 66 'COVID-19 Series: The pandemic year - what happens next?' on Zoom here.

One year on from the first UK national lockdown, in this hour-long anniversary episode of the COVID-19 Series we look forward, to ask what might happen next in the pandemic.

Professor Sir Simon Wessely will be joined by three expert commentators from the fields of public health, infectious diseases and health psychology: Professor Gabriel Scally, President of the Epidemiology and Public Health Section at the RSM and member of Independent SAGE, Dr Muge Cevik, virologist and clinical lecturer in infectious diseases at the University of St Andrews and member of NERVTAG, and Professor Lucy Yardley, Professor of Health Psychology at the Universities of Southampton and Bristol and member of SAGE.

Offering insights from their areas of expertise, the panel will discuss different scenarios for the future of the COVID-19 pandemic, and what we might expect with an evolving virus, changing human behaviour and different approaches to public health.
