to be fair...

the minister did day 'we invested in a portfolio of vaccines'. eventually. better late than never. the words are in our vocabulary, now.

also... to be fair... we are not supporting the Oxfam idea that countries be allowed to break / violate patent / trademark / copyright on the vaccines that have just been developed. again, it's good to see nz finally showing some respect for intellectual property (likely precisely because it invested in development for the first time ever).

we are being strong-armed into more climate change stuff, too. we very very very very much need to be seen to be being strong-armed into more climate change stuff. the local farmers and growers etc etc need to believe that the people responsible are far away and aren't politicians they voted for etc.

Fauci's job was to advocate for public health. And he did. And he did that well. For best practice.

But there are other considerations...


Politics... Freedoms and powers...

Our public health advocates are beloved by politicians and by the people. I guess that is an indicator that they aren't acting in the interests of public health. It's a political role, here. But one that is the same no matter who is in government. So it's... Yeah...

And it seemed to mostly be about placating the public. Saying that there were masks. Saying that there were flu vaccines. Then repeatedly and regularly hearing back from people that the supplies were not getting to the people. So then... What's the hold up? Where are the supplies? Who is hoarding them? Oh, they had to be thrown away because they had expired / weren't fit for purpose. Literally. Only the ones that didn't fit most people were left. That was the stock-pile...
