Let's get back to normal - an interview with Professor Karol Sikora

Season 1, Episode 118,   May 29, 2020, 05:00 AM

On this edition of the Reaction podcast, I was joined by Professor Karol Sikora. He is Chief Medical Officer of Rutherford Health, Professor of Medicine at the University of Buckingham and an ex-director of the WHO Cancer programme. Known as the "positive professor," Sikora has risen to prominence for his optimistic takes on the coronavirus crisis delivered via Twitter. Do tune in - it was a fascinating discussion that ranged over the problems in our testing capacity, the role of the private sector and how quickly the lockdown should be eased. "Let's not have a new normal. Let's get back to normal," he told me.
