COVID-19 Coronavirus has now been declared a global pandemic. More than 130,000 people are now globally infected. In Australia alone, the confirmed cases are increasing at the rate of more than 20% every day. 

Closing down Schools, Early Learning Centres, Businesses etc. are the only proven and effective way to stop this Virus from spreading. The health of our children is paramount and we should not be taking any chances with them. They are our next generation and we need to protect them at any cost!!!. Many children have to travel through public transport which multiplies the risk manifold.

I urge the Australian Federal Government and all the State Governments to urgently close ALL the Schools and Early Learning Centres with immediate effect for at least next 4 weeks. From Easters onwards, anyways they would be closed for two weeks. There is no harm if we close them now to extend that vacation. It is the safest thing to do. Please join me in requesting the Federal Minister for Education to order closure of all Schools and Child Care Centres.
