Title: I know I don't know: Tests, and Covid-19 Patients' Journeys through Hospital
Speaker: Jane Hutton
Abstract: How do we know it's covid-19? I was asked to consider the available data on Covid-19 patients' path into hospital, and then to intensive care, or death, or transfer or discharge. Of course, once in intensive care, patients can move to the states death, discharge home, discharge to nursing home, discharge to hospital ward. I was invited by those who think I know about analysis of times to events with messy data. The data is messy. This means many challenges with testing, tracing, and weighing risks and benefits. The changes in British government responses appear to be driven by different interpretations of questions and answers.
