8:00am On the Brekky Show today, Jamie, Clay and Em had another virus yarn with Dr Jonathan. Seeking answers and destroying the myths surrounding COVID-19.

Today we received an update containing some good news that we are currently doing a good job at reducing the spread of COVID-19, hospitals are planning to lift the ban on elective surgery plus we hear some highlights on the new respiratory and fever clinics.

With so much new information coming to light, some of these discussions and answers won’t be the final word from our doctor. New content will be updated, so keep an ear out.


Dr Jonathan messages to mob


1. In Australia we have really seen days of the lowest cases of COVID-19, we are doing a good job with the measures we have in place towards flatting the curve and reducing the spread.

2. Australia is getting closer to having the capacity to relax elective surgery ban in hospitals.

3. When the government does relax some of the restrictions it’s important that we continue to keep our social distance from each other also do our best to keep our hands clean.
