Coronavirus: Nikki Kaye calls for action on foreign students

From Morning Report, 6:46 am on 31 January 2020

The National Party is calling for the government to act more urgently over foreign students arriving from China.

The Ministry of Education has advised schools to ask any students coming from China to stay away from school for two weeks.

But some Chinese students are being rejected by their homestays.

An Auckland student accommodation manager says it's difficult and costly to isolate students.

Nikki Kaye is National's education spokesperson.

She speaks to Corin Dann.
