The systems we're going to have to have in place are going to have to deal with stupid and inconsiderate people
That is the problem with self isolation, it relies on everyone being considerate and following common sense, and assumes everyone has good hygiene practices, when children often don't. That is why I do wonder if the government shouldn't be leasing some large hotels and quarantining people returning from Australia, the UK etc, in those, as it is likely some of these people returning will have it. If they have it bad, it is going to cost us in hospital resources.
This virus is unprecedented in NZs history, and calls for extreme measures.
New Zealand is not a Police State, Fascist State or Socialist State, we are a Democratic State with an excellent health care system for our size in terms of population, employment, income and most importantly, freedoms !!
You can only rule for and enforce that rule so far in relation to the; ignorant, stupid, selfish and inconsiderate, otherwise we will become a Police State, Fascist State or Socialist State and yes Darwinism will play a part in this.
I for one love our country and its freedoms and health care system, for all its faults. This COVID-19 CRISIS is a time to not only think of ourselves but everybody and to pull together as one and help each other out. Knock on your neighbours door and ask if they need help, not shut yourself off and say F** to the rest. As I said way earlier in this topic, if need be and if wanted, I will come out of retirement and go back into nursing during this period.
