Side Effects / Ep49: How the Coronavirus response could change our society and Human Rights. We talk Law and Risk with Samantha Oakley.

[50 Mins]

This week I talk with Samatha Oakley, Commercial Lawyer. We talk about risk, the Coronavirus act and more.

In the light of the updated regulations from the Prime Minister, we explore risk and the meaning of who is responsible for it. Then we go deeper to explore the far reaching factors of what trace this will leave on our society and our human rights.
