Coronavirus: New Zealand team to self-isolate themselves after Australia tour
Sydney : Amid coronavirus scare across the world, the New Zealand team has gone into self-isolation for 14 days after finishing their Australia tour.
New Zealand Cricket (NZC) confirmed the news that all 15 players and the staff members have gone into a lockdown at home after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s directive on March 18.
The Prime Minister advised all returning travellers to self-isolate for two weeks amid the COVID-19 outbreak, even if they arrived in the country before Sunday night’s cut-off.
“They [Black Caps players and touring staff] have all gone into self-isolation. We’ve passed on all the details about what self-isolation means and as far as we know they’re all following it strictly,” stuff.co.nz quoted NZC public affairs manager, Richard Boock, as saying.
