Are pubs petri dishes that should be shut down and avoided?
Play episode · 11 min
Going to the pub is almost a national sport, which is why the following question might be a little controversial.

In a pandemic, should pubs be closed to try and stop infections?

The coronavirus outbreak in the Crossroads Hotel in Sydney has now hit 30 cases, and may be starting to cause problems with surrounding businesses like gyms.

So should pubs - heaving places with lots of mixing and movement - be closed?

On today's show:

* Are pubs places to avoid?

* Runners come too close to me. Could I get coronavirus from them? They breathe a lot.

* What about gyms? Is it still safe to go to them?

* I can't breathe when I wear my woven cotton mask. What should I do?

* Can you get coronavirus via the eye?

* If a person coughs/sneezes into their elbow and covers that part of their arm with droplets, is it not unhygienic to then bump elbows, instead of shaking hands?
