new study on age and COVID-19 susceptibility and severity

A new paper published this morning in Nature Medicine modelled susceptibility and disease severity of COVID-19 at different ages, including children, and comments on the likely effectiveness of interventions involving children, including school closures.

Two of the authors were available for 30 minutes this morning for journalists to dial in to ask them questions.


Speakers included:

Dr Rosalind Eggo, Assistant Professor and infectious disease modeller in public health epidemiology, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Dr Nicholas Davies, Evolutionary biologist and Epidemiologist, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
