On this edition of Science in Action,

As the epidemic continues, how are the new cases getting infected? Who are they? Who is infecting them and where?

In the UK we’ve seen a change in policy this week. However there doesn’t seem to be much science behind the relaxation of lockdown. We look at what research is telling us about the patterns of transmission and unfortunately, it suggests many of the people being encouraged to go back to work in the UK are those that are most at risk. And related to that, we compare the decision here with what’s happened in Italy and Germany where rules were relaxed a few weeks ago, but in both cases following detailed contact tracing work.

Do you wear a Facemask?

While facemask wearing is becoming more popular and encouraged, evidence suggests masks or other face coverings offer little protection. This finding particularly when worn for more than 20 minutes. We look at the physics, the flow dynamics of virus spread, which indicates particles can both travel much further than 2 metres in the air and be absorbed and carried on such masks potentially spreading the infection.

Covid 19 in Asia.

Studies from Korea, China and the US, show Covid-19 infections are much higher in group settings. These involve any form of energetic breathing such as singing, or shouting. Choirs for example were more likely to spread the virus amongst themselves. This also has implications for children returning to school.

BBC Science in Action is presented by Roland Pease and is available right here on Phuket FM Radio 91.5 and 102.5 FM.
