Gippsland alpacas in Covid treatment research
As active cases of Covid-19 continue to rise in Gippsland, a group of local alpacas may help lead to a treatment.
Gippsland currently has 37 recorded cases with 22 of those in Latrobe City.
Lavalla Catholic College has closed its Traralgon and Newborough campuses for cleaning, saying two cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in its school community.
And the number of cases linked to the Bupa aged care home in Traralgon rose again yesterday with another staff member contracting the virus. That is now 8 staff and 5 residents for a total of 13 active cases.
