Why the worsening pandemic overseas is a risk to Australia

Coronacast 28 de octubre de 2020 31

As the coronavirus pandemic speeds up overseas in Europe and America, it’s putting pressure on Australia’s hotel quarantine system.

Pressure is building because of the higher chance that arrivals will test positive and the increase in demand from Australians wanting to come home.

With more positive cases, the risk of a coronavirus escaping quarantine increases, potentially triggering another major outbreak like what happened in Victoria.

So on today’s Coronacast, is it time to revisit the old idea of opening specialist quarantine stations to help?

Also on today’s show:

* Like everyone else in Melbourne I’m so excited to be coming out of lockdown, but after the initial euphoria of the announcement, and no new cases/deaths, I’ve just been feeling absolutely exhausted.

* What does Norman mean when he says that a vaccine might be only 50 percent effective against getting COVID-19 disease?
