Could coronavirus' death rate be lower than first thought?

There have been many infections from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, which was quarantined in Japan for weeks.

But it turns out it might have helped scientists get a better estimate on the fatality rate COVID-19.

So, could it be a little less than we previously thought? And if so, why are there still so many people dying from it?

On today’s show:

* The infection rate has halved over the last few days, what does that mean?

* Is the way we test people possibly skewing the numbers?

* Can I see my partner if we don’t live together?

* My hands are dry because I’m washing them a lot. Can I fix that?

* Does UV/sunlight kill coronavirus?

And Dr Norman Swan explains the research in The Lancet about mortality rates of COVID-19, compared to influenza and SARS.
