Coronavirus breaking news

The Federal Government has put in place tougher restrictions on gatherings of people in a bid to stem the spread of the coronavirus across Australia.

No more than 10 people will be able to attend a funeral and only five people can only attend a wedding ( the couple, their celebrant and witnesses ).

All real estate auctions and open house inspections will be cancelled.

Leaders have also agreed to a lengthy list of businesses and places that must close from midnight Wednesday night.
