Covid-19: 'Tough decisions' needed to keep virus out - microbiologist

From Morning Report, 7:55 am on 16 March 2020

Auckland University microbiologist Dr Siouxsie Wiles is imploring everyone to work together to stop the spread of Covid-19.

New Zealand now has eight confirmed cases of the coronavirus.

Everyone who flies into New Zealand from overseas will have to self isolate for two weeks.

The only exceptions are for flights from the Pacific Islands.

Dr Siouxsie Wiles applauds these new measures, but says the onus remains on us.

She speaks to Susie Ferguson.
