Car and Garage broken into

Jackie from Phillipstown

Hi everyone! We're on Newcastle street in Phillipstown. Last Wednesday night (6th of November), someone came onto our property and went through my car and garage and took a few tools and electrical items, including a lawn mower, rattle gun and weed whacker. They did this so silently that even our dog didn't hear them. My partner talked to our neighbor across the street and he said someone had broken into his car and stolen his weed whacker.. Has this happened to anyone else?

Hospitals ICU units were already stepping up in preparation for the possibility of severely ill people with the virus. This was because while the virus was unlikely to kill anyone in New Zealand, figures out of China show about one-in-five people who were infected became severely ill.
