Which means level 4 hasn't been adhered to by some people. So it isn't a case of Delta being too hard to eliminate, but flouters letting the team of 5 million down. But I guess the media won't focus on this.
The police helicopter has been out almost every night out here under lockdown. It is out every night when there isn't a lockdown. At some point you are going to get into the part of the community that generally don't give a damn about the community and do what they want when they want. And then the game is over.
IMO the rest of the country have been pretty good at sticking to the rules, and people dobbing in flouters. People wearing masks , even though there is no evidence of any cases outside Auckland. This risk to the rest of NZ increases a lot if Auckland moves down a level with CT still occurring, as the RO value then likely increase. Level 3 is far more than just level 4 with takeaways, the traffic observed on the roads almost goes back to normal levels for a start based on the level change in Wellington.
We also have to remember that the rest of NZ didn't move from level 4 to 3, without very strong evidence that there was no CT occurring, and it was entirely ring fenced. Potentially they could have come out of it quite a bit earlier, but they had to make sure. Auckland on the other hand still has CT occurring and it hasn't been ring fenced. Yet people are expecting them to drop to level 3 in a few days. It just isn't logical based on what has previously happened.
