What can kids' poo teach us about coronavirus?
10 min
Plenty of questions remain about how children are affected by coronavirus, what symptoms they show and how they transmit it.

But a study from China has shed some light on this.

Not only are kids being affected by COVID-19, the virus seems to remain in their poo for much longer than you'd think.

On the show today:

* What does a state of emergency mean?

* Will the 14-day overseas quarantine work?

* Should I cancel my small party or wedding?

And Dr Norman Swan has some new research (with some caveats) about how kids may be affected by the virus.

Coronacast is a daily podcast that’s all about answering your coronavirus questions.
