Is Delta changing the way we go into lockdown?

Description

South Australia has spent the first night of a week long lockdown after discovering a bunch of community cases of the highly infectious Delta variant.

So why do we still see some states act faster than others? And has the Delta variant changed the way contact tracing can help avoid locking down.

Also on today's show:

* More concerns about testing times in NSW and a possible way to reduce the stress on the system

* Whatever happened to deep cleaning?

* How can you consult your GP about vaccines if you don't have one?
