On Dear Science with Marcus Jones we talk about low oxygen levels in Covid19 affected patients, and how hype around a certain drug is derailing other trials for a cure.

With that context on drug research, I speak to Russell Brown about reporting on a possible effective treatment for Covid19 that’s been found in Iran and the process in which this should be reported on.

We hear briefly from the Deputy Prime Minister Winson Peters on the announcement that the Ministry of Health had advised the government early on to close the borders even to NZ citizens.

We have our regular Epidemic Response Committee notes and today the committee is hearing from medical professionals and the severe underfunding of the health sector.

We take a look back at the refugee camps in Greece speaking to another NGO on how mothers and babies fair in the camps, along with the increased risk of Covid19.
