Alright everyone, it’s time to hit the local supermarket and purchase every roll of toilet paper you can lay your hands on! Especially if you’re a New Zealand Tool fan, who may have been exposed to the nasty COVID-19 virus:
A man in New Zealand confirmed to have been infected with the coronavirus was revealed on Friday to have attended a rock concert packed with thousands of other people.
Health authorities said the man in his 30s, who is the partner of a woman who was confirmed to have Covid-19 this week, attended the Tool concert at Spark Arena in Auckland on 28 February.
The band played two concerts to capacity crowds in New Zealand’s largest city last week.
“He was in the general admission standing area in the front left-hand quadrant,” Dr Ashley Bloomfield, ministry of health director-general of health, said at a news conference. “We encourage people who were in the general admission standing area to be aware of symptoms of Covid-19.”https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/06/man-with-coronavirus-went-to-packed-rock-concert-at-new-zealand-arena
I guess this is no laughing matter. If you were at the show, make sure you keep and eye out for symptoms!
