Prof Peter Collignon on controlling virus as lockdowns lift

Australia is cautiously lifting lockdowns after an impressive effort in keeping the number of coronavirus cases in the country under control.

But as more places open up, we are constantly being warned of the threat of a second wave of infections, especially as we head into winter.

Infectious disease expert Professor Peter Collignon, of the Australian National University, has cast doubt on whether Australia can eliminate the virus entirely, but does believe with the right measures we can keep case numbers low.

He will be online today at 12pm (AEST) to take your questions in an hour-long Q&A.

You can ask your questions in advance in the comments below or when the session starts.

Due to the number of questions, Prof Collignon may not be able to answer everyone.
