Someone flies from Auckland to ChCh and brings covid with them

John from East Invercargill

I thought Auckland was in a lockdown that prevented people from leaving the Auckland area and yet someone who was not vaccinated was able to fly to what was a virus free South Island for over 500 days apart from ChCh which was over 300 days and bring covid with them and could have been infecting people in Christchurch for almost two weeks. What is the point of lockdown and the pain it is causing so many people if we are constantly hearing of people from Auckland travelling to other parts of the country. Is this being done on purpose. Again and again we hear of a place with a low vaccination rate and then boom someone tests positive there which drives up those taking the vaccine. When can we expect to see a case or two pop up in the west Coast which has one of the lowest vaccine rates in the SI. Must be getting close to there is no point in having more lockdowns as the cost for people and business is getting too high. Methods of living with this virus must be sort out and introduced. Anyone that watched the ICC cricket last night would have seen little fenced off areas on the grass for individual family groups which separated them from other family groups is maybe one innovated method of allowing people to attend sports or other events . Necessity is the mother of invention and it is way past time to invent methods to live with this virus that is not going to go away nor are present vaccines going to prevent infections . Or do we all go live in little boxes made of ticky tacky and all look the same.
