Eastwood in Sydney's north west has become a veritable ghost town amid fears of the deadly coronavirus.

Businesses in the usually bustling area are struggling as people avoid the suburb partly due to hysteria on social media saying the suburb was hit by the outbreak.

Some shop owners have reported a downturn over more than 70 per cent since the virus reached Australia. 

Locals have shared footage of the deserted suburb, showing eerily empty streets and vacant car parks.

One man wearing a face mask uploaded a video to Instagram showing a shopping centre car park with just one vehicle.

Another man shared a photo of an intersection in Eastwood with just a single car during what would normally be peak-hour traffic

'Ohhh no it used to be full parking,' he wrote.

A photo of Eastwood Shopping Centre shows an eerily quiet main strip.

'I can seriously say Eastwood was a bit quiet today. Even the car park was empty. No matter how hot the day is. People will still be at Eastwood. But today was sure dead empty,' one person commented.

'Eastwood is never like this,' said another.


Ryde councillors are now launching an emergency 'Return to Eastwood' PR campaign to regenerate the area.

Mayor Jerome Laxale and deputy mayor Simon Zhou have put forward a motion to promote local businesses to get owners back on their feet.

The 'Eastwood Small Business Hardship' motion has called on the general manager to set up a $500,000 Small Business Hardship Fund to help Eastwood Town Centre.

Part of the money will go towards subsidised gift vouchers to revamp the local economy.

Mr Laxale said the main focus of the campaign was to educate people about coronavirus in the area to avoid misinformation being spread.

'Eastwood has been targeted with false information. The fact is Eastwood is safe and we want to educate the public and get the right facts out there,' he told the Northern District Times.

'The last three weeks it's been a ghost town and it's an incorrect perception of Eastwood. It's not good for local businesses and local employees.

'People are staying away from Eastwood and there is nothing out there to say Eastwood is not safe. I'm calling on the local MP Victor Dominello and the Premier to do the same.'

There have been 12 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Australia, and more than 20,600 cases and 426 deaths globally.


The cases have occurred in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia.

Coronavirus outbreak causes Melbourne restaurant Shark Fin House to close

A popular Melbourne restaurant described as an ‘institution’ has been forced to close its doors amid the global coronavirus outbreak.

Chinatown’s Shark Fin House, on Little Bourke Street, has suffered an 80 per cent drop in business in the last few weeks.



The restaurant, which opened in 1989, is part of the Shark Fin Group, which also owns Shark Fin Inn and Shark Fin Keysborough.

The latter two restaurants remain open and it’s unclear when or if Shark Fin House will reopen.

The news has shocked Victorians, with some describing the news as “disgraceful”.

“This place is/was an institution, my favourite place in Melbourne for Sunday morning yum cha,” one person wrote on Facebook.

“Living overseas really opened my eyes to just how racist Australians truly can be sometimes and this is a perfect example.==>ANJING,mosok org takut ketularan dibilang Rasis haaa???

“Please go and support your local Chinese restaurant because seeing this just truly breaks my heart.”

Another described the closure as “heart-breaking”.

“Get out and support your local Chinese restaurant. They are doing it tough,” a third person wrote.

Call to action

Chef and owner of nearby restaurant Annam, Pho Nom and Glen Waverley’s Bia Hoi Bar Chef Jerry Mai said the industry is in need of help amid the virus outbreak.

“Chinatown and Glen Waverley are ghost towns right now, diners are staying away because of fears of illness,” Mai wrote on Instagram.

“I’m putting my hand up - my businesses are suffering and I need help.”

Mai said business at Bia Hoi is down 80 per cent, with the CBD venues down 50 per cent. emoticon-Ngakak (S) emoticon-thumbsup

“Things are dire and we need your help - I’m not exaggerating when I say that restaurant doors will close unless something happens right now,” Mai said.

“This is no longer just a disease it’s allowed racists to rear their heads in a time when we should be coming together!”==>ANJING,mosok org takut ketularan dibilang Rasis haaa???


‘Completely abhorrent’ behaviour

Earlier this week, both Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese took a stand against racism in the wake of the virus.

“This is a very significant challenge, and the Chinese-Australian community has risen to that challenge,” Morrison said on Tuesday.

“They deserve our great appreciation and support”

Albanese told parliament Chinese-Australians had been undeservedly targeted as a result of the virus.

“The fact is any racist behaviour will not be tolerated and it must be called out” he

“All of us must stand up and speak out against the ugly, divisive and racist behaviour which has been directed to some of our fellow Australians.”

Australia’s Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy added there was “no reason for people to avoid anybody of any particular background or appearance”.

“We are very concerned about xenophobia and any sort of racial profiling, which is completely abhorrent,” he said.
