Short Squeeze: Economic data and a epidemiologist's view of COVID-19


    This week’s episode of The Short Squeeze is now available, and includes a fascinating interview with Professor Karin Leder, the head of infectious disease epidemiology unit in the department of epidemiology and preventive medicine at the school of public health and preventive medicine at Monash University.
