BMJ gives Special Recognition Award for science communication to Professor Christina Pagel and Professor Devi Sridhar. “Covid-19 is complex and has often been confusing for the public, but during a period of extended uncertainty two voices have provided clarity, Devi Sridhar and Christina Pagel, who have received this special award for their courage in communicating evidence on policy during the pandemic,” said Helen Jones of the BMJ.

“One of the things I hated at the beginning of Covid-19 was a feeling of helplessness. I felt like I couldn’t do anything to help. Now I have found a role and can do something useful for other people,” said Professor Pagel, Independent SAGE’s data expert and professor of operational research at University College London.
