Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Testing septic tanks, using sniffer dogs and deploying drones – these are among some of the surveillance methods being used in various countries to look for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in the community before it becomes widespread. Dr Dale Fisher, Professor of Infectious Diseases from the National University of Singapore, joins consultant urologist Dr George Lee to discuss how effective these surveillance methods are in picking up clues to COVID-19 in the community.
