With each new day, we’re learning a little bit more about the US President’s battle with COVID-19.

Yesterday, doctors said the president’s oxygen level had dropped a couple of times and that he had been put on a steroid drug used in the most severe of COVID cases.

So what could his treatment of experimental drugs and now steroids tell us about President Trump’s condition?

On today’s show:

* What is going on with President Trump’s treatment?

* If he’s not that sick what could the steroid dexamethasone do instead?

* What’s happening in Victoria and New South Wales?

Also Norman discusses the UK reset on expectations about who’ll get a vaccine first, and chats about a study showing that maybe obesity isn’t such a risk factor when it comes to COVID.
