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 yarned about the new app the government has rolled out, to give warnings to those who we may meet with confirmed cases of Covid-19. We also flattened some of the rumors of tracking and privacy concerning the app. We had some positive news and stats regarding the curve and some of the laws expected to be relaxed this weekend.

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. We really have suppressed COVID-19 infection rates in Queensland.

2. Overnight the government has released a new coronavirus app, it’s smart to do some research of your own about the app. The aim of the app is to store encrypted information about your contacts so if you or somebody you know on the app ends up with COVID-19 then the app can improve the contact tracing.

3. National parks will be open to the public this weekend and we can leave the house for a drive, picnic, we can go to the beach and do some boating. You can only do these activities with your own household or going out with 1 person, we are trying to limit gatherings and social distancing, and hand hygiene still needs to be practiced.

Tune in 8:00 am Monday, Wednesday and Friday for more up-to-date news on the pandemic with Dr Jonathan Leitch.
