Regarding the flu vaccine...I know it's best to consider to avoid coinfection with COVID. The usual reccomendation is to have one from end of April onwards. Should we be considering having the flu vaccine earlier now?

Are ASHM providing direct education or information to the Australian Prison system about how best to support prisoners with their BBV care and treatment?
Neil Fraser
45:25
Would be great for ASHM to include S100 prescribers who will do tele-consults for existing clients and fax scripts to local pharmacies (where community dispensing exists).

If only 2 months ish of protection , how many hits can the immune system handle if reinfected
Gala Vanting
50:35
there was mention of defining ‘close contact’ - would be great to get a concise and clear definition from the clinical side that we can pass on to community.

Sex workers are massively impacted in regards to loss of income and also concern that our work involves high risk contact for infection and spread. Does anyone have any specific advice for sex workers?
Heather Ellis
54:20
People will only go so long without an income. Soon they will ignore social distancing in face of paying bills etc. This is the situation with HIV in Africa
Kali Kanivale
55:14
Realistically, sex workers need more nuanced advice than just being told to stop working. This is not possible for everyone. Loss of income can have follow on negative impacts to sw health, such as homelessness.
Lauren Bradley
57:11
Sharon mentioned 'possible immunity' - can anyone expand on this? I've heard mixed messages regarding this aspect.
Katy Roy
57:45
Do we know more about the specifics of transmission from asymptomatic people? is it the same as for symptomatic people? eg 2 hours in close confines with other people?

SHINE SA here - what is the length of time the virus lives on particular surfaces please
Heather Ellis
01:00:05
A question to Edwina. There is some confusion about the effectiveness of the ARV Kaletra. Has research been scrapped on this as treatment and/or PrEP. Or are Australian researchers continuing to investigate. There are just a small number of PLWHA still taking ARVs like retonivir. Is there a possibility that these people may have built up an immunity and this can be studied to come up with a treatment?
Mspudi01
01:00:09
It would be great for sw orgs and support services to brainstorm and share different types of work for sex workers that may have little or no close contact, whilst still recieving income.Sadly, the reality is a number of people centred services will not be able to provide work in the same way and have HUGE impacts on their income source.Brainstorming and have sw's share their ideas and experience of work without close contact is important, as well as support for mental health whilst coping with this isolation and lack of work.

Many are Cipriano, however this can actual feed and escalte poverty for some people. As they will not be in a better position later to pay these, in fact if not recieving income, it can be a stressful worse situation - as they have a large bill/debt to then pay. Something to be mindful of.
