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 the Brekky Crew get the overnight update from Dr Jonathan, we hear about the latest update on statistics of COVID-19 cases, we find out how well our new respiratory clinics are going plus a few of our shops receive some praise for taking extra care of us during these challenging times…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. In Queensland there hasn’t been any new cases of COVID-19, this week we are seeing a reflection of the week before Mother’s Day because there is always a bit of a lag about 7 to 10 days behind in reporting of the statistics.

2.  The new respiratory clinics are running well, because we have these good measures in place there’s not the transmission of other colds and flu around and because we don’t have big cases of COVID-19 around they haven’t been seeing big volumes, they got the capacity to ramp up if they need to.  

3. Dr. Jonathan would like to encourage any adults who have to get tested for the coronavirus to realise it’s harder for the young ones and it’s not a pleasant activity to have to do, however it’s all over and done with quickly and you’ll have that reassurance afterwards.
