So what's the chance your coronavirus test is wrong?
Play episode · 10 min
So you've just had a coronavirus test, and had a little stick shoved up your nose and wobbled around.

But while you’re waiting for a result, have you thought how accurate it might be?

Turns out the so-called false negative rate - that's when positive cases are wrongly found to be negative - can be as high as one in three on average.

What might that mean for Australia's fight against the virus?

On today's show:

* Can I get married in India in November?

* Do vaccines need to be 100% effective to be good?

* How accurate are coronavirus tests?

And we have a special announcement about the Together in Art Kids exhibition. Meet one of the kids who has submitted some amazing work, and the next artist who will help curate the next round of submissions.

If you want to see the art from the "Inner Worlds" exhibition, visit the Together In Art website (search for Together In Art Kids or find the link on our website).
