Video #15 COVID-19: The discovery of germs

In this program Rev Dr Djiniyini Gondarra and Richard Trudgen talk about how germs were first discovered.

They also discuss that it took a long time after the discovery of germs for Balanda to believe they were connected to the disease and sickness they were experiencing.

The traditional worldview of Yolŋu means they want in-depth, science-based information in order to understand any new topic. This is what Yolŋu call the “dhuḏi-dhäwu” – the deep true story. This full series of videos attempts to answer some of their questions from a Yolŋu worldview, using their linguistic construction of knowledge.
