It's hard to say.

1 million New Zealanders live overseas.

half a million in Australia and the rest all over.

Many of them are coming 'home' now...

Bringing CoronaVirus with them into a Country that has only had a few minor clusters and no outbreak. No first wave.

We were trying to do 'quarantine' but we don't know what that means. We were trying to do 'managed isolation'. We like to take a plane-load that has been incubating the virus amongst passengers (no PPE required on our flights) and split them up on landing.

Send a few to Auckland, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch. Then they can mingle with the people there who are all the way up to day 13 of their 'quarantine' or 'managed isolation' or whatever it is.

If someone develops symptoms we like to then transport them to a particular hotel. Not sure how. Not sure if we fly them back from Wellington or Rotorua or...

It's like we are doing our best to get community transmission up off the ground.

I think we are.

I think our politicians might be starting to have a bit of a panic that we are going to be left out... Other borders will open and ours will have to stay closed because our people haven't been exposed at all and we haven't had a first wave, yet.

People haven't caught on to that...

It isn't that we stomped it out. It is that we haven't had our first wave yet.

The District Health Boards have had plenty of time to order hand sanitiser and PPE and to get it properly fit tested for the workforce.

Nasal swabs appears to be a problem. The rate limiting bottle-neck on testing.

We are testing less.

I bet when you go to get tested you have a 20 minute argument with some nurse about how you don't need to be tested. It's probably only a virus (no wait we don't say that anymore). It would be unsustainable to test everyone for anything everytime they got sick. Just go home. Stay home. Don't let us see you in public. Just curl up and die in your home for all we care.

The District Health Board members earn how much???

For doing what????

It would cost $100,000 per year to keep them in jail, apparently.

Instead of paying them we could imprison them for their crimes. Hire someone competent to do their job. And have change.

I don't understand.
