As the rest of the world looks to Italy for lessons to learn, people here warn - before it gets better, it gets worse.
Escape from the Palace Divorces are often messy and costly affairs, but nothing compares to the one that currently entangles the royal family of Dubai. The Emirates' ruler, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, is pitted against his ex-wife, Princess Haya Bint Al-Hussain, who surprisingly at this point, holds the upper hand. In this billion-dollar battle a judge has ruled the princess' claims that the all-powerful sheikh intimidated her with guns and threatened her with imprisonment are true. Other accusations against Sheikh Mohammed are so outrageous they're difficult to believe, but as Tom Steinfort has been reporting for two years now, this royal ruler has form. Shot in the dark Right now, there's one thing all 8 billion people on earth are wishing for: A vaccine for COVID-19. Political leaders everywhere, sweating on getting us to the other side of the pandemic, boldly promise it'll happen within 12 to 18 months. But why should they be so optimistic? After all, vaccines normally take decades to formulate and manufacture, and quite often success never comes. As Liam Bartlett finds out, some scientists say talk of a coronavirus vaccine is not only raising false hope, it's fake news. She'll be Wright It doesn't happen that often, but two-time world surfing champion Tyler Wright does know what it's like to be wiped out in the water. What's been a shock for her though, is being wiped out on land. Two years ago, long before coronavirus brought its menace to the world, Tyler was struck down with the flu. Like many people who get it, she thought she'd be right, but she was wrong. Tyler was hit so hard with post-viral syndrome, at one point it even looked as if she'd never get back on her surfboard. But how she fought back is what makes Tyler Wright a real champ.

The Price of Freedom If the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is seen as a marathon race, where along the road is Australia currently placed? Halfway? Is the finish line in sight? On 60 Minutes, Tom Steinfort reveals the stark truth that we haven't even begun to raise a sweat. Epidemiologists say we're only about a kilometre into this 42km test of endurance. It means, despite Prime Minister Scott Morrison's understandable bullishness, all the talk of easing lockdown restrictions needs to be considered very carefully. For all our good work so far, complacency about the threat of the virus could lead to many more deaths, and a second wave of COVID-19 in Australia, especially in winter, might easily turn into a wipe-out. Way Out There For decades hallucinogenic, psychedelic or psychoactive drugs like LSD, magic mushrooms and ecstasy have been thought of as an evil and dangerous scourge. In that time there have been enough overdoses, especially among young people keen on experimenting, to validate the view. But an increasing number of doctors and therapists are now suggesting that under strict supervision, these drugs can have a vital therapeutic value, especially in helping sufferers of traumatic stress. As Sarah Abo reports, far from destroying lives, these controversial drugs could in fact be used to save them.
