Welcome to 2021 and the start of a new series of the Common Weal Policy Podcast.

This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell discuss the new national lockdown prompted by the accelerating spread of Covid-19 and what we must now do to prevent an endless cycle of lockdowns in the months to come. They also discuss the UK’s strategy of delaying the deploying of the 2nd dose of vaccines in favour of trying to give more people their first dose despite warnings that the vaccine was not tested to be used in this way and worries from NHS staff that this may leave them at risk. Finally, they discuss how the vaccine nevertheless gives us hope of coming out of this period of crisis and what we can start to do to prepare for the recovery we need afterwards.

The Resilent Scotland Plan can be read here.

Indonesia’s experimental vaccine strategy has been reported here.
