Except we aren't. If you're a Kiwi you can still come in. Doh.
I can't believe how slow governments are at making these decisions. Once I was informed of the Omicron Strain I'd have slapped a precautionary ban on travel from anywhere in Africa within ten minutes. Yet they take days.
MIQ works, unless you want to ban Kiwis from their own country. And best include all of Europe and Asia also, add in Middle East as its in Israel at least, and of course all of Africa. And any countries that have had people from those countries recently, example UK etc who now have cases.
Maybe if they pushed for higher vaccination rates this probably wouldn't have happened. Then again. They're not exactly rich.
35% isn't a lot.
