Am I too positive? Maybe, but Im only looking at the math.
I really don't like to demotivate you. But for total NZ you are still exactly 11 days in behind of Hamburg who had the same count (989) the days before. I know there SHOULD be a difference but unfortunately IT IS NOT. That's why I try to emphasize that fact since a while (why else should you have a look to a single bloody German city in a completely different context than yours?). We're at 2739 infections at the moment, you're at 950 and there are 11 days to go.
