covid-19

David from Glen Eden

Being afraid of covid-19 is a normal healthy human reaction but not to the point of any paranoia.

A disease which in a few weeks has infected over six million people and killed nearly 400,000 should be a cause for concern. It is that concern, call it fear if you wish, which has brought together all the brains to figure out how to stop it. It is that concern that now drives the world's best scientists to evolve a vaccine some of which are now being tested.
I find it somewhat disturbing that a few people appear to rubbish New Zealand's attempts to protect us from it.
I would urge such people to learn that it needs only one (ONE) infected person among a crowd to initiate a whole new wave of multiple infections. The ease with which it spreads and the variable but often long incubation period make those lockdowns essential. To rubbish our NZ success and the plans of people who really do know what they are talking about is, quite frankly, not intelligent. It is the people that won't listen that I fear far more than covid-19 itself for they will be the spreaders of it. Let's try and make the App for tracing people work as intended. It could make all the difference if an infected person gets among us. Accept the challenge, let's fix it.

Aucklanders can celebrate the Māori new year with a smaller Matariki Festival this winter in response to a new normal for Tāmaki Makaurau.

The festival begins on 20 June with the winter solstice and ends on 15 July as the Matariki stars rise. You can experience the sights, lights, sounds and learnings of te ao Māori (worldview) in new and different ways.

For National to stand a good chance of winning the next election they may need to change tactics.
New Zealand voters aren't all stupid. Most are educated decent people who work hard and respect each other. Being honest and law abiding is a characteristic which has contributed greatly to our success at so far beating covid-19. The PM has offered her thanks for that. With an election so near it begins to bring out the opposition who are desperate to belittle this government's success. It is harder for them now to claim we are all stupid, but they will try!
It is fairly well known that to gain any credit it has to be learned when to give it. The opposition would regain some credibility and respect if they were honest and admitted how well this government has performed. Mr Muller did offer some credit to start with. We will however see criticism, mostly based on hind sight, and grossly unfair blame for an economic downturn. An economic downturn was always totally inevitable and could have been far worse but for the wisdom and decisions of the team that tamed covid-19 to date. It says it all when the world at large shouts acclaim for New Zealand's almost unique success but our own people in the form of government opposition cannot. National will need to pull something far better out of the bag if they want to win the election. People are neither stupid or weak and all ready the economy is showing signs better than forecast. Interesting times. Mr Muller seems a decent chap but what plans will he offer to convince us he has NZ interests at heart rather than just a quest for leadership. All my life I was inclined to be a National or Conservative(uk) supporter. My choice these days is based on performance and policy deemed best for the country. Party 'names' are not in the equation.
The last National government was disappointing in so many ways and we even now struggle to recover from the legacy of run down services. The world economy was then recovering from the last recession but they still added 60 billion to public debt. People blame the EQ but government contribution was only 8 billion. Voting sensibly needs quite a bit of research and can be time consuming. I await with interest to hear National's realistic plans so I can make a choice. Some interesting history, seemingly well researched, might be enjoyed at CAFCA. It studies asset sales. Google it up.
