After instructing countries around the world that lockdowns were the only way to deal with COVID-19 in the absence of a vaccine, the World Health Organisation has now advised that they are not a long term solution to handling the virus.

The Quicky checks in with the UK, Spain and back home in Melbourne to find out how lockdowns are being handled around the world and what, if any alternative there is without them.
