Each day for the foreseeable future we here at PreKure are coming to you live at 8PM New Zealand-time on Facebook to talk about issues regarding COVID-19. Go to our Facebook page here.


Using grains of rice, Dr Carlo Bellini demonstrates the frightening rate at which COVID-19 spreads.

At the current rate, Australia will have 100,000 cases of coronavirus by mid-April. In Australia, there are about 2,000 ICU beds. In New Zealand there are about 170 ICU beds.

It’s up to all of us, it’s our responsibility, to act immediately, because otherwise we’re going to end up in a situation where our healthcare system is completely swamped. We don’t have enough beds.
