Podcast: Employers warned of Covid spread as some work places reopen

A Kent professor is warning employers to make sure offices are Covid secure, despite the health secretary saying the risk of transmission is low.

Matt Hancock said NHS track and trace data shows there’s ‘little evidence’ of coronavirus spreading in workplaces.

We hear from Martin Michaelis from the University of Kent’s school of biosciences, who is warning that we can’t be sure that’s the case, as most people have been working from home.

Also in the podcast: there are calls for a clamp down on fly-tipping in Kent – and it’s feared organised crime is causing more of it.
