The daily press conferences may have stopped, Professor Chris Whitty is no longer regularly on our TV screens but as many of us know from miserable first-hand experience, Covid is still very much at large in the UK and around the world. At a time when the polio virus has also been found in the UK again and with the Aids virus still one of the main causes of death in Africa, what better time to listen to an expert virologist tell us about the threat viruses hold for humankind and how we can fight them.
