Episode 97: The Long-awaited National Sero-survey
Hello and welcome to The Moving Curve. I’m Rukmini, a data journalist based in Chennai. Two nights a week on this mini-cast, I consider one question around the novel coronavirus epidemic in India. Tonight I’m considering this one — what did the ICMR’s sero-survey really tell us?
The ICMR’s published sero-survey paper is here.
My earlier interview with Dr Manoj Murhekar on the 2019 dengue sero-survey is here.
The Telegraph story about containment zones being left out is here.
A reasonable period of time, and better transparency about the data used and that not used, that’s my hope for the second survey. I thank Dr Murhekar for his time.
Thank you for listening. This episode was edited by Anand Krishnamoorthi. On the next episode — a new question.
