Making Sense Of COVID-19 Statistics

A year into the pandemic, how are you responding to the daily COVID-19 statistics from the government? Do you find yourself confused by sudden shifts in the number of reported cases? We try to make sense of those figures by speaking to Dr Lau Cher Han, chief data scientist from LEAD about how those numbers are gathered. Then, we hear from Dr Hariyati Sharima Abdul Majid, health psychologist at Mercy Malaysia about the psychology of how we respond to these constant statistical updates.
