A few days before the first stage of the season, the Australian Grand Prix, there are reports of a registered case of coronavirus in Melbourne.

One of the guests of the Albert Park Hotel, located in close proximity to the Albert Park Highway, was diagnosed with a coronavirus. Immediately after this, the hotel was closed, and all the staff of the establishment were sent to two-week home quarantine. At the moment, there is no information whether Formula 1 teams or representatives of the international press stayed at this hotel.

Australian Grand Prix promoter Andrew Westacott on the local radio station SEN briefly commented on the closure of the hotel: “We must act wisely and take the necessary precautions, but the option that the race will be held without spectators is not considered.”
