Why I started this blog

I am a professor researching in epidemiology at Oxford University. Immediately prior to this I was Medical Director of a major research charity where I saw at first hand the value of communicating complex medical information to the general public. Since the beginning of the pandemic, friends and family have been asking me how I interpret the vast amount research reported in the media. I started circulating newsletters to that network, but have been encouraged to make these comments more widely available. Hope they help!
