10: Episode 10: Coronavirus Q&A with Dr Robbie Hammond
Joining me from the safe confines of our own home is Dr Robbie Hammond, a junior doctor current working in an ICU in London. To help us all wade through the swamp of misinformation around corona, in this special episode we discuss everything COVID-19, from symptoms to PPE, hear it all straight from a frontline NHS doctor. Please note that this episode was recorded on Wednesday 1st April 2020, and a lot had progressed and changed since then. His unit is now over capacity. This was also before certain comments were made by gvmt about the NHS and PPE use, hence not being discussed. Any reference to official guidance was correct as at the date of recording. For the most up to date guidance please go to https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus. All views expressed in this episode are our own.
