Why isn't Victoria locking it all down?
Play episode · 9 min
Victoria registered 75 new cases of coronavirus on Monday – one of the highest daily increases in new cases since the pandemic began. Last time the curve was becoming this steep, Australia was put into lockdown. And while that hasn't happened again yet, Victorian authorities aren't ruling it out. But if keeping coronavirus under control is so important, why wait? On today's show: * Is it time to get worried about Victoria? * If controlling community transmission is so important in containing the spread then why is the Victorian government not taking any measures? * Will you finally admit that Victoria is experiencing a second wave of infections? * Is diminished or loss of sense of smell a permanent or temporary complication of COVID-19? * Is it safer to fly in business class or does the air circulate regardless and make no difference on such a long trip? And Norman and Tegan discuss some research about COVID-19 in children and infants, which found that while most kids only suffer from mild conditions, some develop severe disease.
