Peter Piot: “It’s Not Over Until it’s Over Everywhere”

Pandemic Planet

In this episode, Peter Piot, medical doctor, virologist, and Director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine reflects on a year of surprises with Covid-19. Why did Europe and the Americas experience so many cases early on, and why are cases accelerating in Africa only now? What role has leadership played in controlling the pandemic and encouraging a stronger commitment to multilateralism and global equity in vaccine distribution? How will the new, more transmissible variants affect the spread of the pandemic? And how are new forms of information-sharing and collaboration shaping how research may be conducted in the future? Dr. Peter Piot, who co-discovered the Ebola virus in Zaire in 1976, is Director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He was the founding Executive Director of UNAIDS and former Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Paul Nurse, Peter Piot and Christiane Woopen on ethics and multidisciplinarity

Science for Policy

Why is multidisciplinary science advice so difficult, and are there ways to make it easier? Should policymakers seek ethics advice as well as science advice? When there is a conflict between the values embedded in different cultural contexts, how can we navigate the conflict sensitively? Christiane Woopen, Paul Nurse and Peter Piot discuss these questions with Toby Wardman of SAPEA. We also discuss the unique challenges of giving advice in a crisis, the relationship between ‘discovery’ and applied science, and whether Rambo would make a good government advisor.Resources discussed in this episodeJoint statement on scientific advice during COVID-19: https://op.europa.eu/en/publication-detail/-/publication/346c8eaf-ba79-11ea-811c-01aa75ed71a1/language-en/format-PDF/source-139601691 Joint opinion on improving pandemic preparedness and management: https://op.europa.eu/en/publication-detail/-/publication/a1016d77-2562-11eb-9d7e-01aa75ed71a1/language-en/format-PDF/source-171481573
