India has gone so far as to ban the social media app, and the same option is being discussed in Australia and the US, among other countries. So what’s motivating the concerns about TikTok’s links to China? How is the company answering back? And would Australia really ban it? Featured: Ariel Bogle, Technology Reporter, ABC Science Unit

  2. How border closures failed in 1919 - The Signal - ABC Radio

    100 years ago, when we were up against the Spanish Flu, Australia failed to contain the pandemic, and the weak spot was the border between Victoria and New South Wales. After that, the disease spread throughout the country, infecting hundreds of thousands and killing at least 15,000 people. The parallels to 2020 are striking. So will Australia’s containment measures succeed where they failed a century ago?
