“We can’t be a society where we sacrifice the elderly”: Mark Latham backs containment strategy

Every level of Australia is being affected by the coronavirus and many Australians are having the conversation about going into lockdown.

NSW One Nation Leader Mark Latham tells Ben Fordham it’s important to listen to the expert advice.

“Ultimately, we’ve got to follow the expert advice. 

“The containment strategy in Australia is obviously the right one, we can’t be a society where we sacrifice the elderly to this new disease.”
