|Fans told to leave Australian Open mid match to comply with lockdown on 23:04 - Feb 12 by MattinLondon|
Bizarre yes. But given the extremely low numbers of Covid deaths Australia has recorded, probably the correct thing to do.
The lockdown was announced that morning. I was surprised the public were allowed in that night in the first place and thought it was a repeat of an earlier match when I turned on on the TV.
I mean, it's not like the virus only comes out from midnight. Surely, they should have said that in the case of the Open no one would be allowed in with immediate effect!
