Could you folks be specific?
I believe that the "disaster" refers to the whole covid-19 pandemic.
Yes correct, Covid 19 Pandemic = global disaster. And as per my post, NZ has done a good job so far at working its way through the disaster.
3 cases today, all from India. Maybe they should be putting all people from Covid hotspots such as India, Pakistan, UK, and US, in actual quarantine hotels, which are more strict. I am guessing the cost of each person that tests positive is significantly higher to manage and accommodate, than someone who is place in a self isolation hotel and is clear of the virus. .
Also someone escaping from a self isolation facility is terrible. I understand it also means the police officers that were involved now have to isolate as well. That will result in a huge cost because they now can't work. Luckily we have found some of the holes in our self isolation facilities before it was too late, unlike Australia, where Covid has slipped through the holes in the border.
