This #TheCanaryLive event will be broadcast at 7pm on Wednesday 3 February
Tragically, more than 100,000 people have died in the UK since the coronavirus pandemic began. Join us as we explore the real story of the coronavirus crisis, how the Johnson government has presided over such a monumental loss of life and how we balance protecting public health with protecting civil liberties.
Dave Carr, an intensive care nurse, will speak about the distressing reality on the frontline.
Professor Anthony Costello, a leading public health specialist and member of Independent SAGE, will highlight the gulf between what the science tells us and what the Johnson government has done.
Emily Apple, The Canary’s senior editor and a founding member of The Network for Police Monitoring (Netpol) will discuss how we can take steps to protect our health while holding the state to account.
Chaired by Nancy Mendoza, The Canary’s Chief Operating Officer and science communication consultant.
