Coronavirus or terrifying hallucinations? Aged care's stark choice

Coronacast 28 de julio de 2020 18

share close

When it comes to coronavirus, there is probably no one more vulnerable to the disease than an elderly resident at an aged care facility.

With 769 active cases relating to outbreaks in more than 60 Victorian aged care homes, you may think the solution could be evacuating those residents and putting them in hospital until the worst is over.

But on today’s Coronacast, Norman Swan tells Tegan Taylor that while a change of location might protect an elderly resident from COVID-19, it could put them at risk of a terrifying medical condition known as delirium.

Also on the show:

* Norman has previously said that coronavirus can survive for days on some surfaces. So why shouldn’t I worry about groceries?

* How should I clean the gym and do anti-bacterial wipes kill the virus?
