Question:

 

In media conference for the past week: quoting directly "we have reached our goal of elimination", "we have no community transmission"

 

Why are we in Level 3: "high risk the disease is not contained" "new clusters might emerge"

 

Anybody can explain?

because sometimes you just need to pause a little to make sure what you have done has worked

If only POTUS had actually said what the reporter claimed he had said. On reading the transcript, he did not.

The Level 3 Rules are the "Health Act (COVID-19 Alert Level 3) Order 2020", here:http://www.legislation.govt.nz/regulation/public/2020/0069/latest/whole.html

 

 

Note that this talks about staying within the same or an adjacent region. So, we are allowed to travel to other regions provided they are adjacent to the one we are currently living in.

 

New Zealand’s regions are defined as: Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay, Taranaki, Whanganui – Manawatu, Wellington, Nelson-Tasman, Marlborough, West Coast, Canterbury, Otago and Southland.

 

From the above link:

 

A person is permitted to do any of the following as essential personal movement:

 

Limited recreation purposes

 

(e) leave their home or place of residence for the purpose of exercise or other recreation if—

 

(i) it is done in an outdoor place appropriate for that kind of exercise or recreation that is readily accessible (including by using their vehicle) from their home or place of residence (and, in any case, is within the same or an adjacent region); and

 

(ii) it is done in compliance with the requirements that relate to physical distancing (see clause 6(1)(b)) and the prohibition against congregating (see clause 11); and

 

(iii) it does not involve flying manned aircraft, scuba-diving, hunting in motorised vehicles, or water-based activities involving sailing boats, motorised craft, or motorised equipment; and

 

(iv) it does not involve any other activities that expose the participant to danger (taking account of their experience and abilities):

@frednz the Government instruction regarding inter-regional travel is that it is highly limited and is for essential workers with limited exemptions.

He didn’t specify the “World Leader” in the question. Just reinforces the media not letting the facts get in the way of their nyuk nyuk moment. Who was the intrepid reporter asking the question?

I will be treating it as level 4. Not interested in KFC online, or buying potting max online. I will see my oldest daughter though.

 

Wife and Mum in Law who now lives with us, both from Wuhan, say its opened up a lot now, pretty much everything open. BUT, they are still abiding by hand washing, masks, social distancing. Thats where the West falls apart. Its a lockdown, now its not. Beers anyone? Its still as much, if not more, a cautionary time.

Rules, rules, rules ..... why on earth do we need rules that try to tell us what we can and can't do. Why not rely on people just being sensible ...

 

 

If today is anything to go by and we follow this procedure then we're all screwed. You'd think the government had announced a switch to level 2 at lunchtime when I wasn't looking, there were normal weekday levels of traffic on the largest road next to us, far more than there had been for the last four weeks, and we heard several gatherings of people, meaning lots of voices talking together, as we went for a walk along a bush track. If this is what the last day of level 4 is like, we're going to need rules and strict enforcement backed by Australia-style spot fines or tomorrow will be chaos.

Just listening to the 1pm update. I echoed PM Jacinda Ardern's words and thanks to Dr Bloomfield. The man deserves a beer.

 

 

Does anyone have a link to the video, preferably direct (e.g. Youtube) without needing to spend ten minutes fiddling with NoScript on some news web site to get it to play?

Sheesh, it was a bit of entertainment to lighten up a serious situation, let 'em have a bit of fun.

I would love to know what is really going on in China (and what the true figures were). There are several channels I watch to get a wider range of news, but all have an axe to grind with the Chinese Communist Party when you dig a little deeper. In particular NTD which was set up by Falun Gong exiles. However the general trend seems to be under-reporting and official coverups of a scale that would have made the Chernobyl officials blush. I’m not expecting any response from you, but understand this is not questioning Chinese people but the CCP.
