Not good . I am now looking at what the MOH media release doesn't say when they announce cases. Also have they given up on the daily 1pm standups?
I see there are 4 new community cases, all linked to the more recent church mini cluster. But unlike yesterday, where they told us details of both cases, it doesn't do that today. It doesn't say that they were already in the isolation centre, or if they are close family contacts or already in isolation. Total lack of information IMO. This is why IMO we need the daily standups to allow reporters to ask the questions.
Testing numbers have also fallen way back. We are doing more border testing now, which are in these numbers, so the numbers being tested in the community must not be very large. IMO the testing numbers should be broken down, like they do with border cases, so we know exactly how many tests are occurring in the community.
When we drop down a level, it is almost like people think that it is over, and complacency occurs. Also I didn't see a singe person wearing a mask in my local town. Not that they are mandatory, but in level 3 there were a lot of people wearing them, but not anymore.
