This week on The Method Section, Tom tackles diseases in a population. With the current activities in the world some people may be confused about what a disease is in the first place, how are they caused, through what organisms and methods are they transferred? How do the health administrations and governments of the world model disease transmission and decide what measures to implement and when do they know if it’s getting better or not? Join Tom as he takes a look at the coronavirus, how it and other viruses spread, and what you can do to help prevent it spreading more. Music by: Joakim Karud –

Hello! I am a graduate marine biologist heading into a specialization of marine mammals! Here at Conduct Science, I am the lead of Team Kilo, we produce articles and The Conduct Science Podcast hosted by myself and Mitch. Come listen to us talk about a whole variety of topics, new episodes every Thursday! I also host an interview series called Under the Microscope where I talk to scientists from around the world in many different fields about their experience, work, and methodologies. And as if that wasn’t enough content every Friday I release a short-form podcast called The Method Section, which is aimed at scientists old and new looking at the community, methodologies, and many other topical and interesting science news!
