The AUS/NZ bubble that everyone wants (well Peters plus every tourist operator) they seem to think if they scan temp at the airports its all good.
When they get two weeks with no cases, get back to us
It is election time when people come out of the wood work every 3 years. IMO we should delay the election to prevent poor decisions being made, and remove politics from the game. The last thing we need IMO a this time is a change in government. We need to stick to the plan and keep it going.
If temperature scanning was reliable, wouldn't they have done it initially at airports. I do recall hearing them say that it wan't reliable, which is why they hadn't been doing it, and these scanners can have quite a large margin or error. Also won't pick up people who are incubating it. With Oz, they need at least a few months without any new cases, to make sure they have properly eliminated it, but as I posted previously their deputy of health said that elimination wasn't realistic, so their strategy was suppression, and slowing it down. . Far safer for NZs economy to quarantine, but people don't want that inconvenience. But I think we ave to realize that if we want to keep the virus out, then the days of uninterrupted travel without quarantine could be a thing of the past in many parts of the world. Quarantine I understand has been part of travel, because illness has always been a problem, killing a lot of people when early settlers brought in illnesses to indigenous people. This is also the problem island nations face, who also largely rely on tourism. .
