Play episode · 10 min
Most states and territories are moving to the next phase of our coronavirus pandemic journey, with some public spaces reopening, larger public gatherings permitted and an increase in the size of our social bubbles. But as we creep back into the world, there is always the risk of another outbreak. On today's Coronacast, Dr Norman Swan and health reporter Tegan Taylor discuss some simple ways you can keep yourself healthy and coronavirus-free while also enjoying your new freedoms. Also on the show: * How we can beat the Prime Minister's goal of reopening Australia's economy before July? * What are sentinel tests and why are they so important in Australia's coronavirus fight? * If so many COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic, will ramped-up testing lead to a massive spike? Tegan and Norman also look at some modelling from Sydney University that predicts a suicide epidemic curve, but also shows what can be done now to flatten it. If you or someone you know needs help, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
