The answer lies in the Italy experience

Paul from Pukete

Why are Jacinda and everybody so hard about the lockdown
The answer lies in the Italy experience and the massive death rate it is experiencing
You have to ask yourself why is Italy getting hit so bloody hard
Well the people in northern Italy have a lot to do with china when Italy opened its borders and trade opened up, there was a lot of investment from China particularly in many of the premier brands in Italy
This resulted in an influx of about 100 000 Chinese gaining residence in northern Italy now when Trump shut out all flights from China everybody called him jingoistic or racist but he actually did the right thing
Italy didn't close down flights from China for fear of being called racist as so the flights remained open for some weeks more, much too current their detriment
Now northern Italy has approximately 20% of their residents infected with Covid 19
so it is literally out of control
Researchers out of Cambridge University have done a study and confirmed this
China,s delay in coming clean about the virus, allowed it to get a big head start as well hence the need for the lockdown,expect it to go on for some time
Once we get released from the lockdown enjoy Godzone New Zealand as international travel will take a huge hit that may well last about 3 to 4 years as countries will be reluctant to open their borders
Comment welcome

Police call for neighbourly calm

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Neighbours,
The police are urging those with concerns or problems with their neighbours through the lockdown to report them using the 105 number.
The call comes after five people were arrested after a recent neighbourhood brawl in Hamilton street which involved a large group of people, with one showing symptoms of coronavirus.
A knife, shovel, hockey stick and baseball bat were reported to have been used in the fight.
