Episode 6: What to expect as lockdown eases

In Episode 6: Oli and Kirsty talk about their own experience in China when their lockdown was first eased. They had to have a valid access card and code to get into any bus or shop.

Episode 4: Military escorts, food rations and boredom

Imagine venturing outside for a grocery run during lockdown and having 12 guards surround you as you leave your apartment; take your temperature and escort you to the shop? This is what happened to our Lockdown Lessons hosts, Oli and Kirsty during their 51 day quarantine in China. And in that shop, there was hardly any food and they were rationed. Very different to our well-stocked supermarkets. The South African couple talk us through what they were going through by the end of their first week. Plus they share great advice for couples - and take a look at the key differences they're seeing between the China and South Africa lockdowns!
