On this show Nick is joined by his cousin Emil Raji who is currently in Jakarta and we discuss the Coronavirus and the substantial impacts that it will have, particularly on the casualised workforce and small business owners.

We really encourage people to check out the article ‘Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now’ on the importance of social distancing and isolating yourself to prevent the spread of the corona virus. The more people do this and the sooner, the more controllable the virus will be.

If you’re in Australia and you think that you might have Corona virus, you can do a symptom check on healthdirect.gov.au and you can also call 1800 022 222 to speak to a registered nurse.
