As Melbourne recovers, regional Victoria is struggling
Aug 11, 2020 · 10 min
The stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne has been successful so far in pushing down the number of cases in metro areas, but regional Victoria risks being left behind.
While the number of cases in regional areas are far smaller, centres like Bendigo and Geelong are struggling to get things under control.
So is there a possibility that Melbourne will get on top of things but regional Victoria will still have problems?
On today's show:
* Are cases increasing in regional Victoria and what could happen if they don’t start falling?
* Do some regional areas need stronger restrictions?
* On healthcare workers, how do we stop them getting sick?
* What about negative pressure rooms in hospitals?
* In NSW, clusters seem to be getting bigger, especially around schools. Weren’t they supposed to be lower risk?
* Should NSW go into tighter lockdown?
* Everyone is making sock masks. Aren’t they going to be too leaky?
