This type of story annoys me. The food in MIQ is fine and looks good from these photos. I am used to boarding school food, someof which which was cr@p.   I wish the media would stop with these types of stories. People seem to forget that is a privilege to be able to return to NZ and have all their quarantine costs paid for by us taxpayers. Also that we are in th middle of a pandemic crisis. Maybe they should move to Oz, as the food in their MIQ is reported to be pretty bad.

Just goes to show you can't please everyone. There's a moaner in every group. The best thing you can do is just ignore them rather than give them any attention.

NPR: New York US Govenor Cuomo Says New York Health Officials Will Review Any U.S.-Approved COVID-19 Vaccine

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that "we're going to put together our own review committee headed by the Department of Health."

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he doesn't trust the Trump administration to deliver a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine because the approval process has become so politicized that its integrity can't be taken for granted.

At a news conference Thursday, Cuomo said state health officials will screen any federally approved vaccines.

"The first question is, is the vaccine safe? Frankly, I'm not going to trust the federal government's opinion," Cuomo said, adding, "New York state will have its own review when the federal government has finished with their review and says its safe."

The Democratic governor has often clashed with President Trump over the pandemic response.

"We're going to put together a group [of scientists] for them to review the vaccine," Cuomo said, adding that he wouldn't recommend New Yorkers get vaccinated until that state-run process is complete.

"I want to make sure we know it's safe to take," he said.

On Wednesday, the president said that if the Food and Drug Administration issues stricter guidelines for a COVID-19 vaccine, he might not approve them and accused the agency of playing politics.

"That has to be approved by the White House. We may or may not approve it. That sounds like a political move," Trump said during a press briefing at the White House.

Cuomo brought up Trump's comments during Thursday's announcement.

"The president is once again in a dispute with the FDA," Cuomo said. "The FDA says they want to make the approval more rigorous, more transparent. The president says they're trying to politicize it. Why would the FDA be politicizing the approval? Between the president and the FDA, only one entity is engaged in the political process and is headed for the Election Day. It's not the FDA."

The timing of a vaccine has increasingly been a source of contention. Trump has said a vaccine could be ready for widespread release as early as next month.

"We remain on track to deliver a vaccine before the end of the year and maybe even before Nov. 1," the president said early this month. "We think we can probably have it sometime during the month of October."

That's a timeline some of President Trump's own scientific advisers have called into question....

Swedish scientist blames UK Covid spike on lockdown strategy

Channel 4 News

Sweden's chief epidemiologist has told Channel 4 News that the UK having a lockdown - and then ending it - was probably the biggest cause of a surge in British Covid cases, compared with much lower numbers in Sweden.

Aren't Sweden now having a surge themselves. Basically they have t live a restricted socailly isolated lives, and older people have to lock themselves away to 'take one for the team'. not a good situation. I also don't thin their economy is doing too flash either. The only reason IMO they could go down the herd immunity route was becuase they had good ICU capacity to cope with cases, but they have had a huge number of people die from it. Especially when compared to NZ. There also seem to be mixed stories about Swedens success vs Swedens failure, depending on the narrative of the story, so it is all about cherry picking stats to support an opinion.

It was there before, spouting lots of non-sense. Someone at the Herald must have finally read it this morning and decided it was too much conspiracy bullshit to publish.

They actually read what they write - Wow you wouldn't think it! (More likely that they received complaints, otherwise it wouldn't have been published in the first place!)

 

It's getting very hard for Joe Public to know what's real.

As Frietasm states a racist attack, but the main thrust was that China was falsely promoting lock-downs in other countries to destroy other nations economies.

 

Pandering to the conspiracy crowd in a big way, which was why I was surprised to see that in mainstream media.
