Episode 60 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonathon and Craig discuss Common Weal’s latest policy paper, Warning Lights: Ten Actions for Covid Elimination. This paper describes a localised “traffic light” system of monitoring the state of the virus in Scotland and allows lockdowns to be as tightly located as possible, allowing the greatest number of people to live as normally as possible until a vaccine is developed. The paper also describes actions that could be taken to protect public servants and strengthen the ability for communities to look after their vulnerable members.

The policy paper can be read here.

And it builds on previous work such as out initial Ending Lockdown paper here.

Apologies for the drop in sound quality in this episode. This is due to the technical limitations imposed by the pandemic lockdown.
