Make sense of pandemic data

Data is key to control this pandemic,” said Dr Soumya Swaminathan, chief scientist at World Health Organisation. But, with so many statistics flying around, it can be quite overwhelming for laymen. How do we interpret data clearly and unambiguously? What sources can be trusted? What is the bigger picture to be kept in mind while assessing this data? What are the responsibilities of government, academic and scientific institutions who are sharing information? These are some of the questions that will be tackled at an Asia Society India talk — Demystification and Dissemination of Pandemic Data — which will see a conversation between Dr Prabhat Jha, professor of Global Health and Epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto and Dr Shamika Ravi, researcher and former member of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council. Tonight, 7 pm to 8 pm.

Check out a live podcast recording

Simblified is a fun fortnightly podcast — with over 170 episodes under its belt — that “explains things in the news to help you appear smarter”. This evening, they are hosting a live recording session on Zoom, in which they tackle absurd predictions for a post-coronavirus world — the more absurd the better. Here’s how it works: Each host will come up with an outlandish prediction, then use some kind of logic to explain why it will be that way. PS: The audience is free to come up with their own crazy predictions in the chat as well. This podcast episode will then be released on May 11. This evening, 6 pm to 8 pm.
