The Moving Curve: Episode 64

Hello and welcome to The Moving Curve. I’m Rukmini, a data journalist based in Chennai. Every night on this mini-cast, I consider one question around the novel coronavirus epidemic in India. Tonight I’m considering this one: have we been looking in the right place?

The ICMR study: http://www.ijmr.org.in/preprintarticle.asp?id=285361;type=0

What the new ICMR data can do is tell us who we should be trying harder to locate and test. But without adequate information about each case, we won’t even know whom we’re looking for, for the most part.

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