I have been asked to speak on the South African TV, Newzroom Afrika, this evening. You can watch the programme on:
The title is not my words, but I agree that control of the virus is a global thing.
I find such occasions quite nerve-wracking. The questions are polite but probing. I do not know how many people are watching, but there might be quite a few with such prime time TV programmes. This means responsibility for the words I use. I do honestly hope that I managed to provide encouragement.
I was interviewed this morning on BBC Radio 5 again – the third appearance since I was asked to comment on coronavirus in June. This was my 7th appearance in the media An interesting experience as always – maybe because of a very early start (6am!), I was feeling quite nervous and did not answer questions as well as I would have liked to.

I am also on Polsat, one of the Polish commercial TV channels, today at 7.25pm (Polish time). Apparently, it is the most-watched television channel in Poland, and at their prime time (Saturday evening), so this sounds even scarier than Radio 5.
