On Darren, Keri, and Sky, Wednesday means this one definite thing: Prof. Túlio De Oliveira from KRISP at UKZN joins us to answer all the COVID-19 and vaccine related questions you may have. He is one of the top virologists, virus hunters, and bioinformaticians in the world, which is why we have him help us and so many other listeners to navigate a world with this deadly virus. 

We received amazing questions this morning which left the good Professor extremely impressed.
