Three new Covid cases (with known links)

Today’s Covid-19 update there are 3 new confirmed cases, two linked to the St Margaret’s Hospital & Rest Home in Auckland (routine testing), and the third a person travelling back from overseas (mandatory quarantine should have contained that).

There are still only 2 people in hospital, and 90 active cases out of a total of 1,497

So the risk is still very low as we wait for this afternoon’s level stay or lower announcement

    Two nurses and an international arrival. The gross failure of the health sector to keep its own services and people safe makes you wonder why they think they are qualified to tell the rest of us what to do.

      Perhaps nurses are just collateral damage.
      The New Zealand Nurses Organisation says it shows there’s gaps in how we are protecting those who are on the frontlines caring for others.

        Along with the economy.

        • And the people who have died waiting for medical treatment, which the 40 more than usual over the first 4 weeks of the house arrest may well have been. As 13 covid patients had died, the others were 3 times as many as that. Collateral damage ?

            So if I follow your reasoning, then if we hadn’t locked down like Sweden let’s say, and had their death rate we would have 1300 dead. So that’s 1300/40. No (1300-13)/40 um? So divide that… carry the … sq root of … about 30 times more. Great so no real collateral damage then. Why did they do it, whyyyyyy? I haven’t had my hair done in weeks.
            …. but now if you take away the number of people who didn’t die on the roads…. hang on, maybe we saved lives?

        Thank you Maggie. But let’s not forget all those in the front line. The more I see of them the more I regard politicians as self serving scum
