Is there enough shade at children's playgrounds in Auckland?

Brad Flahive Reporter from North Harbour News

Hi neighbours, NZ has the highest rate of melanoma in the world and less than 10% of Auckland's playgrounds have a shade sail to protect kids and parents. Should there be better protection at our playgrounds?

Heads up, masks and gloves do a better job of spreading bugs than stopping them.
I found this article far more informative and rational than any other article about 'self care' during this over the top scaremongering about coronavirus.
I totally understand why people are panicking and in so many cases, going completely overboard, but it's like all forms of rational thinking has gone out the door.
The excellent Q & A within this article with David Powell, a physician and medical adviser to the International Air Transport Association is not only rational but reassuring and accurate.
The question where he is asked, " Does wearing masks and gloves help prevent infections?" makes perfect sense and is exactly what I have been trying to tell a few people.
Basic biology classes will tell you just this.
Just be sensible, keep excellent hand hygiene and if you cough or sneeze in public, it's important to cover your face with a sleeve. Better yet, a tissue to be disposed of carefully, and then sanitising the hands afterward.
