An Immunologist On The Science Of Staying Well

Wednesday, 1 April

Regular listeners will know that we normally focus on helping you reach a health or wellness goal. But these aren’t normal times. The novel coronavirus, or Covid-19, is now a global pandemic, and in the UK, we’re facing what the Prime Minister has declared ‘the worst public health crisis for a generation’. Right now, all we - like you - want to know, is how to stay as physically and mentally well as possible, and how we can minimise the risk of causing harm to others. So, that’s exactly what we’ll be aiming to find out over the next few episodes, where we’ll be putting your coronavirus questions to scientists, healthcare professionals and fitness experts. In this episode, Senior Editor Roisín Dervish-O’Kane chats to Dr Jenna Macciochi, a lecturer in immunology at the University of Sussex and author of new book Immunity: The Science Of Staying Well.
