covid-19

David from Glen Eden

Being afraid of covid-19 is a normal healthy human reaction but not to the point of any paranoia. A disease which in a few weeks has infected over six million people and killed nearly 400,000 should be a cause for concern. It is that concern, call it fear if you wish, which has brought together all the brains to figure out how to stop it. It is that concern that now drives the world's best scientists to evolve a vaccine some of which are now being tested.
I find it somewhat disturbing that a few people appear to rubbish New Zealand's attempts to protect us from it.
I would urge such people to learn that it needs only one (ONE) infected person among a crowd to initiate a whole new wave of multiple infections. The ease with which it spreads and the variable but often long incubation period make those lockdowns essential. To rubbish our NZ success and the plans of people who really do know what they are talking about is, quite frankly, not intelligent. It is the people that won't listen that I fear far more than covid-19 itself for they will be the spreaders of it. Let's try and make the App for tracing people work as intended. It could make all the difference if an infected person gets among us. Accept the challenge, let's fix it.
