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

Today we hear the news of how many people attended the Saturday afternoon Black Lives Matter protest and we get a rundown on quarantine regulations if you are planning to travel by plane this could apply to you …All this and more.

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.

Jonathan messages to mob

1. Sounds like there were 30,000 people that attended the Black Lives Matter protest in Queensland, for anybody who attended the event if you are feeling unwell within the next few days this week experiencing cough or cold symptoms you should go and have a COVID-19 test.

2. You only need to quarantine in Queensland if you’ve come from what’s called “a hot spot” and there’s 3 declared hot spots in Australia and they are in Victoria. If you have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case, then you must go into 14 days of isolation.

3. Keep up with social distancing and hand washing and let’s continue to get through this together.
