Boy doesn't misinformation fly the kite surrounding the Covid 19 epidemic.
A ZB talkback listener a few days ago tried this on a sometimes naieve host, Nick Mills: something like "we should follow Sweden who have all but eliminated Covid and has opened up its society with no restrictions."
Well here are the bare stats about Sweden and Covid 19 and the delta variant: deaths near 15,000, affected over 1.1 million. Population of Sweden 10 million.
Denmark has declared that Covid will be treated in their country right now as being nothing more than a kind of normal virus.
Well Denmark has had 2600 deaths with 351,000 people affected with the virus. Population of Denmark 5.8 million.
NZ has less than 4000 people who have caught the virus and 27 deaths. Pop 5 million.
Let us not forget that contracting Covid and esp the Delta variant can leave people with permanent health issues and a less than health secure future.
I hope that Sweden and Denmark do reach pass the 90% mark of elligible people fully vaccinated, because this is what NZ has to do.
