Episode 23 – Modelling COVID-19 in Africa

In this episode, we speak with Lawrence Were and Tom Achoki from the COVID-19 in Africa Data Science Initiative. We talk about their work modelling COVID-19 in Africa with a multidisciplinary team of Pan-African bio-statisticians, data scientists, economists, epidemiologists, and health systems researchers, and discuss what the data means for response, and long term resilience building across the continent and the globe.
