Been out a bit in the lower south the last couple of days and people down here are getting a bit pissed off with the constant level 2 enforcement.
Hadn’t realised as been on the farm and it really doesn’t affect us , and am happy to use my phone to sign in to pub etc .

But was actually surprised at the public sentiment, and tbf we haven’t had a case in about 3-4 months .

Well it's going to be reviewed on the 14th?? so I'd fully expect everyone except Jaffaland to go to level 1 with them at 1.5.

I just had a look at the L2 rules - they're pretty much similar to what we've been in NSW since we came out of lockdown.

So I'm actually surprised to see why people would be that pissed off with it - the biggest inconvenience really is doing the contact tracing at cafes, pubs, and restaurants.

I loved the way Jacinda smiled all the way through her explanation that the Govt had done everything right and we'd lost the hosting rights through no fault of our own and it was entirely down to 'SANZAR Politics'. Ffs she almost looked pleased that we had lost the rugby. She could have at least shown some empathy by cocking her head to one side, putting on the furrowed brow, and feigned look of concern as she explained how disappointed she was that we'd lost the hosting rights. She could have then finished triumphantly by busting out her trademark smile and exclaiming that she is confident NZ will still win despite the added difficulty of the travel and away fixtures. But not a skerrick of sympathy for the poor old down trodden average rugby fan.

I'm with you. Unless you are a promoter or events organizer who is unable to host normal crowds so it is affecting your business. On the other hand pubs and restaurants having to maintain social distancing, table service only, one server per table etc it must also be costing them money. For those that are doing it right it will be costing them money through smaller numbers permitted in the venue as well as extra staff. That's for those complying with the rules of course. I've seen plenty that aren't bothering. :uhoh:

Well Sumo Stevenson said it's NZ Rugby's fault for alienating it's SANZAAR partners. Apparently they're a bunch of mean schoolgirls and couldn't possibly have just made the decision based on financial benefits.....

I'm not sure why NZ feels it needs to reinvent the wheel with regards to the management of sports teams when there are many countries operating successfully with Pro sports leagues despite having much higher Covid rates than us.

Perhaps because we don't want to acquire their higher covid rates by loosening our quarantine requirements for sports teams?

Yeah there's lots not bothering here too, although they just shut a pub down for repeated breaches of social distancing.

It's pretty easy to avoid the places who don't give a crap though TBF.

A third of New Zealanders don't know which political parties are in Parliament, and less than half know how a party can get into power under MMP, a new report shows.

If you keep doing those things you might help prevent there being any more cases in Wellington, or help to keep any future outbreaks from getting too far out of hand.

Ardern displaying her keen grasp of economics again I see.
She said the National Party's target of getting debt back to 30 percent within 10 years would mean dramatic cuts.

"I fundamentally disagree with the approach put out by the opposition. They are yet to tell us how they will achieve their 30 percent target which could mean up to $80 billion worth of cuts.
https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/42 ... he-economy

When if fact
To get debt back down to 30 per cent of GDP by 2030, National would have to make some cuts. But not $80b worth.

Labour - most notably its leader Jacinda Ardern - has repeatedly stated that a National government would make $80 billion worth of cuts to public services over the next decade.
https://interactives.stuff.co.nz/2020/0 ... n-is-wrong

I suppose the alternative is that she's lying.

How?

The scanning is tracing after you get a case.

If I hear we get one some where I will probably start being arsed.

There are 5 million people in the country and logic says I won't be near the first one

How many players in the A-league, AFL or NRL are known to have caught or spread covid-19 after their teams went into the bubble?

Someone you encountered today might not test positive for another 5 or 6 days, in which time you might have been infected yourself and encountered another 40 or 50 people. Will you remember them all? Will you remember everywhere you went in that time?

In the event that there is a positive test, and you are at risk, having rapid contact tracing can help all those 50 people self isolate and reduce any further spread of the virus which will mean the cluster outbreak will be smaller.

It's actually pretty impressive that it hasn't happened already. Even putting aside the known issues with managed isolation that have made the headlines, such as the idiots who have broken out, just think of the challenges necessary to ensure all of the infection control measures work 100% of the time. We've had infection control measure fail in hospitals at time despite the staff having all of the right gear, training etc.

Hopefully there will be an effective vaccine soon. Lots of places working on them with some promising results. Although one promising one in the UK has taken a pause while they work out if reaction in one of the volunteers is related to the trail or not. But that's fairly standard practice.

Coronavirus: Quarantine hotel worker one of two new Covid-19 cases

Two new cases of coronavirus were reported on Sunday, with one being a health worker at an Auckland quarantine facility.

It is the first time a staff member at Jet Park Hotel has tested positive for Covid-19 since it started operating as a quarantine facility almost six months ago.

The other new case is a person who returned from South Africa on September 8, who is in quarantine in Canterbury, health officials said.

There were no confirmed cases linked to Auckland’s community cluster on Sunday, one day before Government officials were set to decide on the country’s alert levels.

If you're calling rugby union in NZ like you're mini Aussies you deserve to not have the test matches.
