Thanks to clear and decisive leadership, an intelligent government, the decision to go hard and fast, respect for science, and overwhelming commitment by local kiwis we can celebrate a milestone, Aotearoa has no current cases of Covid 19.
Now we are at a maintenance stage. It seems very likely that a decision to take us to level one will be taken this afternoon with the change to be implemented probably this week.
And the virus is a bastard. Continued vigilance is essential and my view is the borders need to be kept shut until we can be sure our status is not threatened.
But for now Aotearoa we can all celebrate. And reflect that Jacinda and Micky Savage (the real one) will in the future be talked about with the same affection and appreciation.
