Coronavirus loves lungs. Does it also lurk in our blood?

When coronavirus infects someone, we know they can spread the disease via coughing and sneezing.

But what about other forms of bodily fluid like blood?

Around the world, there have been no reports of transmission that have definitely proven blood to be the cause.

But the virus has been found in our blood, so it is theoretically possible.

So what could this mean for blood donations?

On today’s show:

* Is giving blood safe?

* If someone with the virus coughed or sneezed on another’s open wound, can the virus get into the bloodstream then the lungs?

* Is there a chance we’ve eradicated the seasonal flu seeing as its infection rate is much lower than coronavirus?

* If there are no new cases and haven’t been for a while, like in WA, why do we need to continue with social distancing?
