Can we do better at protecting health care workers?

One of the startling figures from the Victorian coronavirus wave is the number of healthcare workers who are getting sick.

Nearly 1000 Victorian healthcare workers currently have COVID-19, a number that has doubled in less than a fortnight.

When coronavirus hit China and Italy, we saw terrible numbers of healthcare workers getting really sick and sometimes dying.

So as the numbers continue to rise, what could happen in Victoria?

On today’s show:

* How many healthcare workers could die?

* Norman talks about a study that looks at antibodies in health care workers in New York, which also reports some encouraging information about the accuracy of coronavirus tests.

* Numbers are slightly down in Victoria over the weekend. Is Norman going to do a victory lap about his prediction?

* Physiotherapists and other allied health professionals must now wear eye protection. This even applies in clinics treating only non-symptomatic people, with everybody wearing masks. I don’t understand this rule, unless you can catch the virus via aerosol through your eyes? Can you?

* What’s happening on the vaccine front? Are we going to get jabbed soon?
