    Covid-19 vaccine trials
    Bloomfield said there 90-100 trials currently underway to help develope a Covid-19 vaccine overseas.
    He said the Government was very keen for an ANZAC approach to rolling out a vaccine, when it’s available.
    He said he would have more to say about that in the coming weeks.

    Good to see the Government taking my advice at last. I have more.

    I’m still perplexed over the use of the word ‘eliminated’ when it’s applied to something which is clearly not eliminated. The correct phrase is ‘tightly contained’.

    I guess Jacinda wants election build boards to read. Covid19: ELIMINATED

      Once upon a time the objective of scientific definitions was precision. Now it is political advantage. The rise and rise of pseudo-science.

  4. 3 News says nothing about the 226 ACTIVE cases; they just say that there are 1476 cases in NZ which is very misleading indeed. They did say that 80+% have recovered, but omit to mention that the 1476 includes these.
