New Zealand’s Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters was taking questions after giving a speech in Tauranga when a man with a whiny North American accent demanded that the Prime Minister prove that the Coronavirus was real. Peters’ reaction was recorded by SBS:
“Where’s your evidence that there’s a virus that causes the disease?” the man said, before being interrupted by Mr Peters.
“Sit down, sit down, sit down,” Mr Peters said.
“We’ve got someone who obviously got an education in America. 220,000 people have died in the US, where there are eight million cases to date. We’ve got 79,000 cases just today, probably in India, and here is someone who gets up and says ‘the Earth is flat’.
“Sorry sunshine, wrong place,” Mr Peters said, to applause.
