As pubs and restaurants re-open in some states, you're probably thinking that it's safe to return as long as you maintain 1.5 metres distance from other diners.

On today's show:

* Can COVID-19 be spread through the air-conditioning?

* Will social distancing save me?

* Is it true that no scientist has physically isolated an actual COVID-19 virus that can be viewed under a powerful enough microscope?

And Norman and Tegan talk about some exciting research about antibodies.
