Death rates and false comparisons: who should we trust?
The Coronavirus Ireland podcast is a new series from the Business Post, providing you with the latest news on the coronavirus pandemic

Health Editor Susan Mitchell explains how differences in reporting methods for Covid-19 deaths mean global fatality tables don‘t necessarily paint an accurate picture of the coronavirus pandemic and how successfully different nations are handling the crisis. Susan and co-host Nadine O’Regan also discuss the relatively good state of testing in Ireland and the ongoing spread of misinformation.
