    people that use NZ as the bench mark are idiots - how do they get out of it?

    waiting for a vaccine isn’t the answer

    all NZ has done is delay like Australia have done.

    It’s still all rubbish though.

    Ok to go to work on tube? Yes

    Ok to have a wedding with 30 people you know and can track with ease? No

    the whole trade off with pubs for schools is also rubbish, how are they even a balancing act?

    I say that as someone that goes to a pub 2/3 time’s a year max.

    I'm pretty sure anyone who has benefitted from remdesivir or dexamethasone would speak rather more highly of a delay-based strategy.

    Which the states have bought up a majority of, nor is it a silver bullet.

    that’s also not what NZ are doing.

    It's a by-product of delaying/supressing widespread infection - it buys time for more effective treatments to become available.

    It's already happened. Hopefully it will continue to happen. New Zealand will be far better placed to deal with a spike now than it would have been in March.

    For me, that’s what lockdown was largely about. It bought time to develop knowledge and treatments which would save more lives of those who become seriously ill. That’s now happening. It also gave us four months to get on with developing a vaccine.

    Interesting, his area of expertise isn’t necessarily one in which he is important in terms of lockdown and virus spread but on the flip and looking at his profile it seems he may be wanting to avoid home drinking? Maybe? That’s genuine interest.

    I’m actually really interested in the development of this Pubs v School trade off thats bubbling. On the face of it surely its a no brained? Kids go to school, education is key, family’s can maybe attempt to go to work?

    OR

    Pubs do better to police the rules And there is no trade off? I walked past a fair few today which were mad busy. Surely that’s on the pubs to police like the smoking ban is? I have this theory that a fair few pubs are smash and grabbing the cash as they can before either a lockdown or a clip on the wrists

    Empty vessels scweaming and moaning will always make noise. The far few% extremists scweaming (from the far left/right/up/down/inside/outside) whilst the middle 95% majority actually think something is fine.

    NB - seems like Covid is affecting Asian populations to a greater degree, whether that is from biological reasons or multi-generational households, hence (reading between the lines) the Government trying to protect them by saying "don't mix households" and "oh you can go to the pub but that is mostly non-Asians".

    As will anyone that would otherwise died.
    Not a privilege that the dead have.
    Yes NZ and Oz are probably just delaying - but that has increased the possibility of saving lives. And that matters.

    I heard on news Aus have announced a state disaster and Iran have been lying about their numbers.

    Australia’s idea of a disaster seems to be very different to ours.

    As for lying about numbers, I don’t think our government is in any position to point fingers on that one.

    Wasn’t a comparison just saying what was on the news.

    According to the reports Iran are near on 50,000 deaths, not sure what they are reporting

    If and when we ever get to a point where the truth outs regarding numbers, my money will be on our government's 'official' numbers being closer to reality than almost any other country...
