Are Victoria's numbers really going down as much as we think?
Play episode · 11 min
While the decline in Victoria's coronavirus case numbers has been incredibly positive over the past few weeks, worryingly the number of people getting tested is also falling.

Yesterday, Victoria recorded fewer than 14,000 tests — much lower than NSW's 25,000 and even Queensland's 20,000 tests.

So could a lower testing rate be hiding the true situation in Victoria and are Victoria's numbers really going down as much as we think?

On today's show:

* How do we know what the true number of cases in Victoria are if there's not enough testing?

* Are the right people being tested?

* Why might people not be coming forward to get tested?

* Did the man in Hong Kong who tested positive for COVID-19 twice really have it the first time?

* What's the difference between the Oxford vaccine and University of Queensland vaccine?

* Why are scientists trying to make different types of vaccines when the Oxford vaccine might work?
