do you mean bail conditions didn't require Corrections to do the transport?
daily numbers is a pretty abstract view of a strategy that takes a really large and complex number of variables into account.
I missed that bit. Corrections didn't do the transport from Auckland to Waikato?
lol, all of us. Lots of discussion down south about what would trigger someone to dob someone else in. So are they getting all/most of the links between households clear?
they're still waiting for genome sequencing.
Ardern has just clarified that the prisoner most likely got covid from people who transported them who had been in Auckland, and that it's very unlikely they got covid from the prison they were in, or from their household.
I don't know what that means. MSM have been reporting as if people know where places are, what level they are in etc.
you're making shit up. If you disagree with their rationales, make the argument. But just saying they've gone L3 because we've lost the fight against zero covid is just your unfounded reckons which don't take into account the strategy and how this outbreak...
Bloomfield saying the same thing, with more explanation and detail. eg vaccination makes L3 more effective than last year.
If most of the transmission is happening within households, how are those households getting infected?
"It is basically them admitting finally we lost given the numbers and unknowns." Ardern just said exactly the opposite.
those tomatoes and cucumbers in the supermarket at the moment weren't grown in the SI. Not that it would be a huge hardship to eat seasonally, but I suspect the supply lines we currently have mean a fair chunk of what the SI eats comes from up north.
Nelson grows avos :-) Lots of fresh produce comes from the NI though, especially in winter and early spring.
I was just riffing off Muttonbird's intolerance. You don't need to take it personally or universally. But obviously poverty in a NZ is a factor in the challenges to our covid response and much of NZ votes in the governments we have that have let poverty ...
how much of the South Island's food comes from the North Island?
Because it sounds to me like NZ has learned nothing.
You said, Why were these kids at school, one being symptomatic? Have people learned nothing? I'm asking what the parents of those kids should if they are unable to stay home from work to be with the kids so the kids don't go to school. In the first ...
Your link says 10% of respondents definitely won't get a vaccine. Why you would want to lump probably won't in with them I have no idea, other than that you are fatalistic and refuse to look at why people are vaccine hesitant, instead prefering your hive ...
it's only a weasel word if you believe your reckons are fact.
I read RNZ yesterday and today and found them weirdly confusing. I've yet to see a timeline written out. It's probably harder from down here to make sense of things when MSM use local names and don't explain where those places are.
which highlights a gap in the system, but maybe some people could hold back on the judgemental approach given the long term issues and the immediate ones.
people I know are managing this via extended bubbles eg families whose kids get on doing shared care, but even when we were under L4 there was no local transmission. And they weren't getting financial or structural assistance.
that's for people with covid or waiting for a test. I'm asking what support there is for someone with a child with respiratory symptoms when that person can't stay home and look after them.
If you treat people as a hive mind (and project on to them), it's impossible to see what solutions will actually work. Sounds to me like you are ok with us not reaching 80 - 90% vax rate, which is disappointing.
have they said the transmission happened in Auckland?
what support is available for workers who can't stay home with a sick kid?
presumably because they don't yet know where the prisoner contracted covid.
"People that feel coerced will mostly get over it fairly quickly." Fortunately for NZ public health, the MoH and the government understand that coercing people creates both resistance to the thing being coerced, including in other people, and creates ...
"We're now at the stage where most of those that haven't yet had their first jab are avoiding it." Citation needed.
but there is support available for exactly this scenario, ie caregivers staying at home with sick kids. What support is there for that?
