Why do some people have a severe response to COVID-19, and others seem to have no symptoms at all? Is the answer in our genes?

This week we talk to Chris Wigley, the CEO of Genomics England and Interim SRO for Data-NHSX, and Dr Richard Scott, the clinical lead for rare disease at Genomics England and consultant clinical geneticist at Great Ormond Street.
