"Significantly, the last three days' test results reflect level 3 conditions. People testing positive yesterday likely felt symptoms on Wednesday or Thursday meaning they contracted the virus at the end of last week under level 3," the ACT leader says in a statement on Saturday.
Only if people have bothered to get tested. It has been shown people can take 5 days or longer for people to decide that it maybe a good idea to get tested, after developing symptoms. So the first level 3 cases may not appear until this week. It was recommended by one expert working with the MOH for the MOH to actively contact people to see how they feel, to try and prompt people to get tested. This could occur in known areas with there are cases.
But 2 cases today and some other recent ones, have been traced back to existing cluster.,But I wonder if many of those have occurred because of level 3 causing more bubbles to merge? The MOH are still not providing enough details on these current cases, which they can easily do. There was also a very recent case of someone in Nelson, who I understand may have been a supermarket worker that they hadn't apparently linked to any cluster. Not sure if that has been linked to any other case yet?
Yep, who cares if it came from a cluster, I care where the person has been, to potentially affect others. Then there are days before they decide to get tested, then 1-2 days for a result. If they infected anyone 3 days ago, add another 6-7 days
