tdgeek: ... but we imported probably a lot more per capita than most. And with a small sample, the clusters we have probably are very high per capita, as we have bugger all per capita.
I think you over rate the significance of the imported content of NZ cases relative to other countries. NZ has far from the highest content of imported cases.
NZ imported content ~40%
Hong Kong ~58%
Taiwan much higher (last I looked it was well over 80%)
And there will be a good few others
In fact all countries had 100% imported cases, except China. The reduced % now are due to the 100% imports infecting locally. You could argue that we are failing as we now have 60% locally spread infections, as compared to Australia with only 35%. I would assume that our cluster sizes are much higher than elsewhere, per capita. But if you have a low base to begin with, a cluster of 87 is very large. So it makes your %'s non comparable.
