I have been following the World health organisation situation reports which come out daily and have noticed the quoted cases in New Zealand is consistently lower than those quoted to the public.
Now there could be some credible reasons for this such as probable cases not being included , time Of day reported to WHO not for same time span due to differences in time zones,
My understanding is probable cases are often someone who is assumed to have had the virus due to being the only link between two or more cases but may have been asymptomatic and no longer have the virus, of course if that’s the case these should also be counted as recovered cases.
I think we should be being quoted the same fingers as submitted to WHO
Otherwise we are open to conspiracy theory’s that the government is making situation look worse than it is to encourage compliance to the lockdown.
The who reports are one day behind so is yesterday’s reported cases but they show yesterday’s 6th April cases at 39 and current cases at 911.
Perhaps the government could explain why this is the case.

Roads are NOT stockcar tracks

My partner did oblige with a horn toot and the 1 finger salute to the female driver who did NOT stop. You will know who you are because your SUV will have dark blue paint on it now where your new dent will be. I would like to let this female know she was lucky it was not me driving my car as I would have chased her down and she would not be happy. This year has been a shitty year so far with our cat mauled by dogs and now this lockdown with a severe income shortage. Now I have a dent in a car I can't afford to insure or afford to get fixed. If you can't drive decently or stop when you have done wrong then you should NOT be on the F#&%*# road.
