RE: Coronavirus - New Zealand
perhaps there is a disconnect at the hospital, logistics, supply chain, whatever.
seems the case, Lance O'Sullivan put a thing on FB today, saying there was only 4 swabs in Kaitaia, but the head o Kaitaia Hospital said they had almost 150...assume whoever Lance spoke to when obtaining swabs to test a man, wasnt fully aware of thier numbers?
I know Lance does alot of great work, and is often bang on, but why is there this disparity of information out there?
Mis-informaiton, or lack of clarity never helps.
Mrs TR went shopping at P'n'S today, which is far and away the busiest supermarket in town, yet she said it is run way better than the 'local' countdown (which is 1 of 3 Countdowns here) she went to mid-week, even had some of the elusive flour and fly spray!
RE: Coronavirus - Overall
@Victor-Meldrew same in NZ I believe.
My neighbour said he has his flu jab booked for the 14th...on arrival, calls the Dr and gives them his car rego, they will then come out to him, supposedly in full PPE to give him his jab.
I haven't had the flu jab since I was in the UK, also haven't had the flu since I had the jab either...but if they have a CV jab, I think I'll take that one.
RE: Coronavirus - China
@Crucial in hindsight it is easy to say we should have could have done this or that, but this has still happened hugely quickly...I mean 14 days ago, I had just returned from school camp, and things had started to take a serious turn:
15/03 - first round of travel restrictions imposed (however soft they seemed)
19/03 - further restrictions on our borders
26/03 - NZ in lockdown
03/04 - today
I am sure every Government, given the chance would do things differently, but we are where we are now, on the surface, in a much better position than most of the rest of the world IMO.
