LETS GET DOWN TO BUSINESS.

Question :
I’ve heard that 2 more weeks in Level 4 could eradicate the virus altogether. Wouldn’t that be safer for our families and businesses in the long run?

  • What we have heard is that we may never stamp out the virus completely but we can materially impact on the rate of growth by going another week. We also need to remember that it is costing us $1b per day while we are locked down. We can also prepare to be ‘ready’ if we do get a break-out in terms of contact tracing, and our health system. It is a balancing act – where we hope we can do both.

    We have some great minds in Government, Cabinet, Ministry of Health, MBIE, etc are carefully analysing the data, generating insights, debating the course of action. There is no right or wrong answer here, people are making the most appropriate decisions that they feel is right for NZ based on all available information at the time.
