TMR podcast: Pathogens are having their passports confiscated

Communicable Disease podcast Political

Who’d want to own a pathogen? Turns out, nation states are very interested in retaining sovereignty over their viruses and bacteria.

But will this attempt to monopolise the vaccine market slow down the global response to pandemics?

The WHO is starting to get very nervous, and so are we!

Also in this episode of The Medical Republic podcast, we examine organ harvesting in China, Robbie Bedbrook discusses better funding for GP nurses and we talk about the ancient practice of using honey-ified corpses to treat broken bones.
