Description

For the second time in a fortnight, residents of Perth are facing lockdowns or increased restrictions due to a coronavirus outbreak from hotel quarantine.

Last week, a security guard contracted the virus in a WA quarantine hotel. From there, it's broken into the community with at least two close contacts testing positive.

It's again put a spotlight on hotels being used for quarantine and has disrupted the lives of millions of West Australians.

So on today's Coronacast, what do we know about the latest outbreak and are more lockdowns coming?

Also on today's show:

* Does the AstraZeneca vaccine protect against serious illness from the serious variants?

* Will Australia be getting the Moderna vaccine. If so can it approved and be released this year?

* And a study about a man who suffered from COVID-19 for 8 months!
