chatterbox: Home iso no different from MIQ. The only difference is you have more control of incoming kiwis than you do the ones in country. Which basically comes down to… who do you trust and who don’t you trust? Would you trust yourself to home quarantine effectively?
it absolutly is different, you can easily walk out your door at home and go anywhere you wanted while isolating at home, the only thing stopping you doing that is YOU. and its pretty easy to say na haven't been anywhere. You rely on people doing the right thing.
Try walking about the door at MIQ. its not very easy.
That is why home isolation is a bit of a waste of time IMO in terms of preventing the virus getting in . Many people may initially do the right thing, but if they see others openly flouting it and without penalty or a wet bus ticket, then that will erode compliance. I know people who openly flouted it it March 2020 before MIQ came in. Plus you can't stop people visiting. Incoming people into NZ with the virus is what seeds it and create new links of transmission.
