Eliza is home and thinks Australia is doing a great job at managing the COVID-19 crisis.

Geraldine agrees and is very interested to see how Australia's approach compares to Germany and Singapore.

This week Geraldine interviewed Professor Howard Markel from the University of Michigan about the history of vaccines. Both women agreed that if this coronavirus was targeting children - like polio did decades ago - it would be even harder to control one's fear and anxiety.

Geraldine and Eliza read out some contributions from the LDC community via the Facebook page about how they're keeping busy during these strange times.
