Did coronavirus slip into NZ by cold freight?

As the coronavirus outbreak in New Zealand continues to grow, theories are circulating about how the virus snuck back into the country.

While the most likely explanation is it came in via a human, there are a few other suggestions.

One is that it never left and has been circulating silently for months, though health authorities say that this is unlikely.

Another is that it slipped back into the country on imported cold meats.

So how likely is it?

On today’s show:

* Are the numbers in Victoria getting better? Are health workers still a concern?

* How did coronavirus make it back into New Zealand?

* Has SARS-CoV-2 mutated so that it’s now more contagious?

And Norman and Tegan discuss a fascinating pre-print study about a fishing trip where nearly everyone on board got infected, except three people. What could that mean for vaccine development?
