Who to believe? Whose word should we trust? These are the urgent questions that many people are asking after almost a year of Covid-related chaos. While certain basic facts have been established about the virus, such as which groups are most vulnerable to it - overwhelmingly the frail and elderly - there remains much that scientists do not know, or cannot agree upon.

Still, when it comes to a difference of medical opinion between the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the local anti-abortion group, Precious Life, I'll take the word of the global health authority. I think most reasonable people would do the same.

The WHO has strongly criticised a leaflet produced by Precious Life, warning people against having the Covid-19 vaccine.
