In a conversation aimed at separating the fact from the fiction with regards to all things Covid-19, David discusses fake news, conspiracy theories and why we shouldn't compare ourselves to Italy's handling of the virus outbreak.
From a clear outline of what advice we should/ should not trust to why fear isn't helpful and what aspects of stocking-up is not necessary and much more, this is a very comprehensive and important conversation with one of Ireland's leading commentators on both medicine and flawed logic.
