Gee whiz, nothing gets past you does it Rammster, but hardly a revelation. Australia have already introduced a ban on all gatherings of 500 people or more, much like a lot of the rest of the world already have or are doing. It'd be surprizing if something similar didn't happen here, regardless of which political party you support.
Can't you smell the coffee?
If what all the world leaders and WHO say is true, that its serious, then even if it was minor problem its probably still quite epic.
If only 0.5 percent of the world population of 7.4 billion people die thats still 37 million people, plus the financial anarchy.
But yeah, keep those anti Jacinta, pro Hosking comments coming mate, I look forward to hearing what constructive comments Simon says, if anything.

The more I've seen heard and read today the more convinced I am that after Jacinda has done her PR rally on sunday, within hours a gov't agency will be encourage all events of 500+ ppl to be canned. I t wouldn't surprise me if speedway season is over come Sunday night.
So do we stop selling our manufactured goods ,bringing the country more and more closer to a recession ,because of a few cases which has happened in the country re this corona virus . I guarantee you more since this virus scare reached our shores that New Zealanders found out they have Cancer related problems to deal with than this corona virus and its associated activity . Sure we have to take action at our borders to stop those from affected countries ,and that is paramount ,but to come out with statements like have been read is a little over the top ,else this is one way of shutting down Primary industry ,which is essential to keep the wheels of motion going . In attendance at a funeral of a very special loved one recently more than the average mourner .was present ,it must of been the methanol that kept the virus away ...
I was just coming on here to post something simler. While she can't put a stop to anything it wouldn't surprise me if princess Jacinda comes out on Monday (after her PR showcase on Sunday) comes out and recommends all large public gatherings be cancelled.
I wonder if there has been abut talk around the committee tables of speedway clubs about cutting their season short.
In asking this I don't for a minute think they should be canning anything yet, but is anyone keeping an eye on it?
To distract people, she'll wheel out baby pics or wedding plans - sop for her
All the above has proved to be fake news with the Remembrance Ceremony cancellation. We need to move on and accept that the PM male or female receives far more factual information on the crisis than those who receive theirs from F/B or talk back radio. Read Go Slideways post on what .5 percent of world population equates to and come up with how to stamp it out without dramatic action world wide. My only medical knowledge is what the doc tells me on my rare visits so sorry I can't even offer a suggestion. Will speedway follow other sports and have empty stadiums, who brave enough to make the call without direction from the Beehive.

NRL is looking at hosting the Warriors in Australia for the duration of the travel restrictions. Adelaide or Darwin would seem the most likely places to base them. Altho if the games are in empty stadium starting next week they may as well base in Sydney and play their home games as double headers with already scheduled games.
On the subject of speedway, it wouldn't surprise me if the season is over after this weekend.
MotoGP has moved all the races from March & April to November due to the travel restrictions, only 2 of the classes raced the first round due to them having a test session the week before at the track so no one needed to travel from Italy especially
