New Zealander Angus Vail on the NYC coronavirus threat

From Sunday Morning, 11:05 am on 15 March 2020

Former INXS business manager Angus Vail is no stranger to Sunday Morning, having featured on the show last year when he helped organise a US fundraiser for the victims of the Christchurch mosque attacks. He lives in Jersey City, just across the river from the World Trade Centre, and is with us to look at the coronavirus outbreak impact in NYC, where a state of emergency was declared on Thursday evening.

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on March 09, 2020 in New York City. As global fears from the coronavirus continue to escalate, trading was halted for 15 minutes after the opening bell as stocks fell 7 percent.
