Diary of a Doctor on the front line – chapter 1

Alex is an Infectious Disease Registrar at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. He’s also a Scientific Group Leader at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics where he specialises in looking at genetic susceptibility to certain diseases. As you already know, his focus right now is coronavirus. I’ve been recording his day-to-day events, thoughts and feelings for the past few weeks. The aim is to give insight into the wonderful work happening here in Oxford, not only by Alex, but by the amazing people at the hospital and university.
