NZ media puts ‘coronavirus’ to the vote

Can
you even imagine asking the f…king question?!


97%
of respondents voted ‘YES’, and so have more sense than our
government or media.

Poll:
Should New Zealand be 


screening for the deadly 


coronavirus?

Eleven
countries, including Australia, have now confirmed cases of the
deadly coronavirus.

At
least 41 people are dead – all in China where the virus originated –
and more 1200 people infected worldwide.

Currently,
the New Zealand Ministry of Health says the risk of an outbreak in
Aotearoa is low, but the situation is being monitored closely.

While
the World Health Organisation is yet to recommend border screening or
travel restrictions, screening is taking place in the United States,
China and Canada, but not in New Zealand.

Some
experts suggest the impact of thermal screenings would be minimal in
detecting the illness. It can sometimes take days for symptoms to
manifest and screening doesn’t pin down the illness a person may
have.

But
many Kiwis, including some in the National Party, are concerned
travellers returning to New Zealand from China, especially after the
Chinese New Year, could bring the virus to our shores and want every
precaution in place. International students will also soon be on
their way to New Zealand universities.

Do
you think New Zealand airports should be screening for the illness?
