Episode 91: Research In The Time of Covid

Hello and welcome to The Moving Curve. I’m Rukmini, a data journalist based in Chennai. Twice a week on this mini-cast, I consider one question around the novel coronavirus epidemic in India. Tonight I’m considering this one — what’s it like doing research in a pandemic?

The TIFR-led Mumbai sero-survey is here.

There’s a lot that we don’t yet know about the disease, particularly as it plays out in India, and such locally gathered information will be vital.

Thank you for listening. This episode was edited by Anand Krishnamoorthi. On Sunday — a new question.
