When scientists differ, it's time for debate. Instead, the politicians seem to have switched off, writes Gene Kerrigan


Up to now we were fairly united in the fight against Covid-19. The scientists spoke with one voice and they made the running.

Politicians took the scientific advice and helped put the message across: stay at home, keep your distance, wash your hands, bend the curve.

And all the right numbers have been going down - except one. We've lost more than 1,700 people.
