Update: 11th August 2020 – New community transmission cases discovered. Heading back in to partial lock down.
I feel Ashley Bloomfield’s (NZ’s Director General of Health) concerns are valid. Feeling the pulse in general, I am sensing…
- An up tick of sentiment against the counter measures in general, including against the prospect of lock downs and mask wearing in New Zealand, particularly on the more conservative side of the political spectrum.
- People not getting tested or otherwise refusing a test when showing respiratory symptoms or when otherwise directed to do so by their doctor.
- A general feeling that most people have become unduly complacent, prematurely patting ourselves on the back and living like the Virus won’t ever come back.
The thing I feel is that all it takes is one case to come undetected into the community and can possibly see this whole situation go up in flames like a tinderbox.
