Play episode · 11 min
The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews revealed some startling figures yesterday.

It wasn't just that the state recorded its highest number of new coronavirus cases in a single day, it was the huge percentage of people that were getting tested and not isolating before they got their result.

* Many of Victoria's outbreaks are in essential industries. How can we control that?

* How long is an asymptomatic person contagious for? 14 days? Or forever? How does it work?

* There has been a lot of talk about different ways of cleaning masks. Isn't detergent and water just as good as anything?
