I can’t believe you guys in New Zealand. 4 cases. Why can’t you get your act together? Here in the states we have 50,000/day, a dominating performance compared to your lame handful.
And that guy. He didn’t even blame other political parties, claim it’s not a thing, or foment anti-mask sentiment. How boring.
Don't hold your breath, I think we'll be up to 20 community transmission cases by the end of the day and a lot more by next week.
It's been confirmed that the 2 members of the family who travelled have infected people in 2 other cities so far with another dozen or so probable cases pending, plus at home they went to church with 300 other people, so now there are about 600 close contacts that are being traced and tested.
They also got pulled over for a traffic offense while passing through my city so the officer involved in that and his family are being tested and in isolation pending the results.
On the political front our main opposition party, The National Party, has started making insinuations in interviews that the government is holding back vital information from the public, stopping just short of making direct accusations but enough to try and sow the seeds of doubt among their base.
Also a newly formed political party named 'The Peoples Party' has started actively promoting conspiracy theories including Hydroxychloroquine, anti-vax, and other garbage.
