Everyone is getting ‘carried away’ about COVID-19, we’ve all got to ‘move on’: Richo

Sky News Australia published this video item, entitled “Everyone is getting ‘carried away’ about COVID-19, we’ve all got to ‘move on’: Richo” – below is their description.

Sky News contributor Graham Richardson says everyone is “getting all carried away” about COVID-19, it hasn’t had the effect “people said” it would have. His comment comes regarding news councils across New South Wales have called to cancel Australia Day to prevent a spread of COVID-19. “I don’t understand what we’re getting excited about,” Mr Richardson said. “I think we should take three deep breaths and say to ourselves; Australia can handle this, we’ve all got to move on, resolutely, and not be put off. “It’s not that hard, really, you’ve just got to have some steel in your spine”.
