shk292:I'd be interested to know how many inbound passengers are arriving at Vietnam's borders every week. My guess would be "very few". Ditto for the Pacific islands. That's our Achilles Heel - the number of people flooding into NZ and the inescapable law of probability that says it will cause outbreaks. But we have chosen to enable relatively easy travel into NZ despite the pandemic so that is a consequence we have to live with and minimise.As long as NZ looks a bit like the promised land to our expats compared to wherever they are (from a covid perspective) they will continue to arrive. Worldwide covid infection numbers are still not reducing (steadily rising if anything). India is on a steady upward trajectory.
We should expect the percentage of positive cases flying in to steadily increase too. Just got to hope we catch them at the border. Would be nice to screen them out before they get on the plane.
