Not sure if this is useful or interesting to anyone else but I set up a little visualisation for my own interest that shows the impact of the virus across the globe. It didn't turn out to be as cool as I'd hoped but I'll keep tweaking it over the next few days anyway, it has been fun to work with.

DarthKermit: No lockdown can apparently stop the spread of stupidity sadly. 

 

The stupity isn't spreading, it's always been there. It's just a lot more apparent now.

Supposedly you're not allowed to drive for more then 5 hours to get to where you'll be staying, otherwise it's stay where you are. However, Mr Bridges seems to think he's more important than that. This has got to be one of the flimsiest excuses yet. To avoid being seen as hypocritical, I think those putting up calls for the health minister to be sacked need to apply the same standard here.

Where does that say essential service workers are not allowed to drive more than 5 hours?

 

Let's say we need to move doctors to Auckland from Wellington.  Is there going to be a law change to allow this to happen?

Rather off-topic, but it's interesting to see how some countries with very little to work with are coping with Covid19. For example Bulgaria, which is pretty much the basket case of Europe, or at least the EU, activated Cold War bioweapons protocols, put some medical Major-General with an unpronouncable name in charge, and isn't doing so badly considering the... problems the country has. Remains to be seen how it'll work out long-term, but it's a good example of doing something with nothing.

Major General Professor Doctor Ventsislav Mutafchiyski. How can you go wrong with someone like that running things?

How does NZ’s Covid-19 response stack up?

 

Good comparison of New Zealand current status vs comparable countries.

If Dr's need to be moved they will be. They are the definition of essential.

Mr Bridges saying he has to drive from Tauranga to Wellington and back to run a meeting over Zoom is NOT essential and is patent BS.

Interesting reading for those who can read German, the German government's risk analysis for nation-scale threats, including a pandemic. The specific threat scenario for a pandemic starts on page 55.

 

 

I wonder how long it'll take for the conspiracy nuts to latch onto this: It talks about a virus that originates at a wet market in Asia in January and hits Europe in April, and continues on from there. Amazing that the Robert Koch Institute, roughly the German equivalent of the CDC, already knew about this in 2012. It has to be a conspiracy, but now the Germans are in on it too! I always knew Merkel was a lizard under that mask.

nothing to see here. it's happened a few times before, it's happened again in 2019, it will happen again if we survive this one.
