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

Some topics of discussion this morning is with schools returning soon, should we all be catching public transport? Should we open the state boarders?… 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. As far as Dr Jonathan is aware in Brisbane our public transport doesn’t have limits to how many people can catch the bus, it’s a tricky situation because we don’t want everybody crowding and not reconising that social distancing, yet obviously some people need to rely on public transport to travel to work and with schools coming back there’s no doubt that there is going to be more people using public transport.

2. Hot topic – Should we open the state boarders or not? The short answer is we can’t now, though there are industries that rely on this and it’s good for our tourism industry, we might see this restriction eased with time.

3. We are 3 weeks after starting the relaxation of restrictions and we really haven’t seen any spikes in COVID-19 cases in Queensland.
