Think coronavirus only kills the old? Think again.

Coronacast 15 de marzo de 2020 17


Background
share close

One of the biggest myths around coronavirus is that it’s only the old who are at serious risk.

But evidence from China and Italy show that intensive care wards are full of otherwise healthy younger people.

On the show today:

* Back to basics: how do you stay healthy? We’ve got some simple tips.

* Should I keep my routine medical appointments?

* What can we expect over the next few weeks?

* What are some of the myths around coronavirus?

And Dr Norman Swan has some research from The Lancet about risk of death and how long people might stay infectious.

Coronacast is a daily podcast that’s all about answering your coronavirus questions. 

If you want to send in a question, go to abc.net.au/coronavirus and we might answer it tomorrow on the podcast.
