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

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

Today we focused on infection within children and the continuation of school this far into Australia’s fight with the coronavirus.

We touched on the election and process involved with seeking medical attention, if suffering from the COVID-19 symptoms.

Dr Jonathon also explained the routine for himself and health workers alike, when preparing to come into contact with a possible case.


Dr Jonathan messages to mob

1. You can call your health clinic first and have a brief conversation with your Doctor, before visiting your health clinic. You can also call the National Coronavirus Helpline for information on 1800 020 080 this helpline operates  24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

2. We still need our children to have a quality education, There is a case to say keep your children home if your able too, Some parents are able to keep their children at home as long as that education can continue and be supported, this will depend on the schools, at the moment schools are in the process of preparing a system for online learning.

3. If you are wearing a mask and coffing and sneezing yourself those fluids are going to be trapped inside the mask and could make things worse if you don’t change your mask or are touching your mask. Be mindful that we do have a limited supply of mask.
