Virus-hunting scientists win Nobel Prize for Medicine | Inside Story

As the world battles a new and deadly pathogen, three scientists have been honoured for their work on a virus that’s ravaged people for decades: Hepatitis C.
Research dating back to the 1960s successfully identified the virus, limited its spread, and led to effective treatments.
But, as with the new Coronavirus, there’s no vaccine.

Presenter: Hashem Ahelbarra
Guests:
Stephen Griffin, Associate Professor at Leeds University, Chair of the Virus Division at the UK Microbiology Society.
Philippa Easterbrook, Epidemiologist and Scientist with the World Health Organization’s Global Hepatitis Programme.
Dr Bob Arnot, former Chief Medical Correspondent at NBC News.
