Is your scientific work trustworthy? What do you have to do to make it trustworthy?
Scientific work is routinely scrutinised by peers but also by the media, citizen scientists, lawyers, policy makers and so on. This rightly places the burden on scientists to defend the integrity, quality and reliability of their work, i.e., its trustworthiness. I will use the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020) as an example to discuss trustworthiness in relation to the data and statistics available at the time. Science was just one part of the picture that governments and policymakers used to assess risks in order to make difficult decisions. I will encourage discussion on the trustworthiness of the scientific information and evidence that was available.
