NZ's cases grow. What's the point of going for elimination?

The number of coronavirus cases in New Zealand has continued to grow, as health authorities desperately try to track down and stop the outbreak.

Prior to the coronavirus being found in the community, New Zealand had more than 100 days of zero community transmission.

But as they’ve just found out, keeping it that way seems impossible.

So if the virus is going to make it into your community eventually, what’s the point of trying to eliminate spread?

On today’s show:

* Victoria’s numbers are falling nicely now. Is zero cases still something to aim for?

* New Zealand’s cases of community transmission are on the rise again. What does it teach us about trying to eliminate the COVID-19 virus?

* We’ve had a lot of questions about a possible treatment for COVID-19, with a mix of the drugs ivermectin and doxycycline (also zinc). Why are some people suggesting it should be studied?

It’s also time for another Quick Fire Friday!
