Why are people of colour more likely to catch and die from COVID-19? Devi Sridhar, Professor of Global Public Health at the University of Edinburgh, gives us her view, and also tells us why the as-yet unknown long-term consequences of the virus for survivors could make COVID-19 ‘our generation’s polio’.
