I think it is a good problem to have, if we do manage to starve the virus of hosts and kill it off, and at least run a domestic economy. Other countries may have to be in lockdown for 6 months or even longer, on and off, just to flatten the curve to reduce the demand on the health system, but will end up resulting in a lot of people getting it. IMO we don't really want to have to go in and out of lockdown, and don't think people will be happy if that occurs, and we may then have to look at what Australia appears to be doing and hibernate the economy. IMO we want to go hard and go strong now , especially as we are heading into winter, so the earlier the better
Whats Australia doing though? That we can do? Apart from allowing barbers to open. I agree re domestic economy, Kiwis can be tourists, imported goods still coming in, exports going out.
