Title: Corona Virus
Post by: Tommy Oliver on March 24, 2020, 05:20:39 AM
So from Wednesday 25 11.59pm New Zealand will go into full lock down for 4 weeks we have to stop it here and now before it gets out of hand like Italy and Spain, yesterday we went from 102 yesterday cases to 155 today this not a decision made lightly by our Prime Minster I believe they've been working on this tirelessly for the past few weeks as to not spread panic when they made yesterdays announcement everyone will get paid by the government to keep the lights on and food on the table.

I just hope people behave and do what the government is asking of us otherwise the military will be brought in, and they will not be nice about what happens to you after that

My work decided to shut down yesterday as the bulk of our suppliers and customers would be doing the same technically I can remote access my work computer but there would be little point as I cannot send our products to suppliers and customers

Canada is slowly doing this as well i know the province of Ontario, more specifically Toronto is pretty much shutdown. The streets are like some sort of semi-creepy zombie apocalypse. only a handful of people driving around, and even less walking around.

Hey ek hope you are safe during these troubled times since new zealand went hard and shut down the country for 4 weeks we've had a lot of success currently we have 35 active cases and 21 deaths 1503 have been infected all up i'm really thankful we have a leader that listened to our doctors and scientists rather than those idiotic business people that were prepared to kill us all for profit and herd immunity that does not exist.

We've been coming out of locked down slowly i've been back at work now almost a month, 2 weeks ago some more business were allowed to open and so were schools but with strict guidelines which are starting to be relaxed today it was announced will continue in level 2 for another 2 weeks but we can gather with 100 people as of Friday and some restrictions relaxed our borders will still be closed to anyone not a nz citizen or have government permission to come here no one knows for how long but with the poor handling that's been going on worldwide I doubt it the border will open any time soon

Our government has been doing alot to try and save as many businesses as it can and help support those that have lost their jobs they are spending alot of money right now and trying to ear mark big projects that can go ahead asap to keep people in work

We are slowly coming out of lock down too, a lot of people felt trapped and everything. I think we had about 84,000 cases and 6,000 deaths so far.

I blame most of the folks who "worship" Trump, and believe that they live in the USA and not Canada and have been purposefully disobeying protocols and inevitably causing a spike in cases.

We here in Canada seem to be bouncing up and down, one day we had only 200 or so cases, then it jumped to 400, now 300, its crazy.

But we did hear that we will try and get to stage 2 by the end of June so hopefully i can get my Ramen in the actual restaurant... i hate having to get take out for soup type items.

New Zealand is going on 14 days in a row no new cases and only 1 active case, next week our leader will be deciding if we go down to level 1 which is highly likely at this point no more having to queue up to buy food or social distancing we will most likely stay at level 1 for the rest of the year  which basically means the border stays shut to anyone not a nz citizen and government exemptions on a case by case basis , we might be open to some next year

Winter is coming so it'll be interesting to see if we get any new cases during that time or ghost cases which will keep the health ministry awake at night

New Zealand is officially Covid19 free we've now moved to Level 1 social distancing restrictions have been loosened we no longer have to line up to shop businesses, schools etc can open as we once did our borders will stay shut until such a time that other countries can prove they are too free of covid19

The Coronavirus is back and our officials have no idea how it got there as the people that are infected had no contact with people from overseas or travelled overseas there's about 13 of them as of yesterday 12pm it was decided that Auckland City would move to level 3 lockdown the rest of the country would hold at level 2 all access ways are road blocked by the police and military unless you live or work in Auckland your not getting in or out

Yesterday was absolute chaos on the roads as the idiot masses went and panic bought food and toiletries on mass in some cases the police were called to sort the idiots out, today it was nice on the roads as I drove home from work 15mins home time wish this could be a thing forever

Oh yeah, i had nice quiet drives on the roads for quite some time too... only now are the idiots that have played too much GTA 5 or Racing games coming out and not being able to distinguish the difference between a video game and real life. They just whip by going 2 times faster than the posted limit and not signalling lane changes.

Our leader has confirmed level 3 lockdown will continue for 2 weeks in Auckland back to queuing up in long lines to buy food for me yay......... the rest of New Zealand will hold at level 2 they are still not sure how the family contracted covid19 there're all sorts of rumours and speculation which are turning out to be false but what our health officials do know this could be a new strain case's have jumped to 29 as they track community transmission they'll review how things are going on August 21

One of the main things they've learned from this is families can't self-isolate together as they'll constantly reinfect each other using the bathroom, kitchen etc so they've taken them all into a secure facility to manage and care for these people initially they were upset but they sat them down and explained all of this to them as in some families cases it took 46 days to be clear of infection so they're trying to be smarter about it this time around and we might not have to lockdown for a long period of time if we go hard early like last time

We are slowly creeping to normal here despite the "we have had 500 new cases and 5 deaths", the real challenge is for the school kids, im very worried about them basically getting wiped out like they did in that one Georgia School in the USA.

The US really doesnt get it, i feel sorry for the smart ones that are following the rules and trying to get back to normal the right way.
