Epidemiologists have become the new rock stars in an era of coronavirus.
It’s these ‘disease detectives’ who have kept the world informed about how the virus has been spreading and how it might spread in the future.
In this episode, you’ll meet Professor Mike Toole, a 40-year veteran of disease control whose face now pops up all over the world’s media.
Mike is an epidemiologist at Burnet Institute and the technical adviser to the Know-C19 Knowledge Hub.
He had to shelve his retirement plans in Egypt, to help solve the COVID-19 puzzle.
