In this episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain speaks with frontline GP Dr Siema Iqbal from Manchester about the Coronavirus pandemic.
Dr Iqbal explains why the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) is reaching a breaking point due to COVID-19 and what that actually means in real-life terms.
She also shares her thoughts on how the UK government has handled the virus from initially proposing “herd immunity” to now opting for a partial lockdown with less than two weeks away from the expected peak of the pandemic.
Topics of discussion also includes the timescale for mass testing kits to be made available, the theory behind social distancing and isolation, and why Muslim communities are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19.
