COVID-19 Observer: Tuesday 17th March

Coronavirus is really kicking our arse right now. The borders are all but shut down, the economy is in the tank, even rugby and all the other major sports have been canned. 

What’s a sports journalist to do in these difficult times? My original goal was to sit down and write something to make you feel better, but honestly, right now that’s hard.

I can’t remember how many times I’ve said or heard the word ‘unprecedented’ in the last couple of days, but these are truly unprecedented times for us all. 

In response, our Government will be injecting $12.1billion into the rescue effort, but will it be enough? Probably not, I fear big time for the future of smaller businesses in New Zealand and the smaller businesses all around the world. 

It feels, in some strange way, like COVID-19 has been the wake-up call the world has been waiting for. Do you feel the same? How are you going to adjust to self-isolating in the coming days, weeks, maybe even months? 

If you aren’t in this position, count yourself lucky, but be careful out there. Now is not the time for selfishness, we are all going through a difficult time.

All of us. As one.
