My Weekly ABC COVID-19 Update (29 April, 2020)

On my weekly ABC Radio National COVID-19 update with Fran Kelly, I spoke about my concern that COVID-19 restrictions are easing too soon.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that as many as 25 per cent of people infected with the new coronavirus may not show symptoms.

What that means is that there are people out there shedding the virus who don’t know they’re infected.

We need to start thinking about making everyone in the community wear masks in an effort to eliminate transmission of the coronavirus disease

We also need to start thinking about testing asymptomatic people if we want to prevent a second wave of COVID-19 in Australia
