Melbourne recorded its second worst day yesterday with 374 new cases of coronavirus.

It's also been nearly two weeks since the city-wide lockdown was reimposed, but as yet there has been no reduction in new cases and it's unclear whether the curve is flattening.

Restrictions seemed to work a lot faster the first time, so what’s going on?

And you asked for it: we have Norman's explanation and breakdown of the promising results of the Oxford University coronavirus vaccine.

On today's show:

* Shouldn't we be seeing a reduction in new Melbourne cases by now?

* Is it time to impose tighter restrictions?

* Why are we not being advised to soak reusable face masks in ethanol?

* I'm a mask newbie. I experienced a suffocating feeling, like I was in a stuffy room with humid stale air. Do you have any advice?

And you have some comments about not inhaling scotchgard, questions about if we're anti-Queensland because we forgot to mention them yesterday and was Norman grumpy on Monday.
