    No, it was the NZ health minister David Clarke. No single country owns the sole rights to stupid.

    I agree, when it comes down to cases per million population Australia is doing better than New Zealand, Aust 248, NZ 276.

    So far both countries have come through pretty well, lets hope the trend continues.

    I stand corrected. It looks like exactly the same thing happened in NSW and NZ. Oh, and the NSW one was the Arts Minister. Oops. My bad.

    You should be very proud, indeed. A true reflection of the difference between "leadership" and BOSS-ship.

    Keep in mind, numbers reflect "tested" positives....

    NZ is fortunate to be an island nation and have closed our borders early. We are at the end of the "chain" in terms of outbreak so the last to get hit and acted early, learning from other countries efforts. Most of our cases are young travellers in their 20s returning from overseas which is why our death rate is low.

    I think season may have a small effect as we are in summer and the UV light is killing the virus. We have also had a drought so outdoor surfaces are dry (the virus survives on damp surfaces). I think this effect is small, less than quarantine itself, but still helping. Also has no effect on indoor spread which will be the majority of spread.

    The USS Theodore Roosevelt sailors were thought to be initially infected from staying at a hotel where two had tested positive in Da Nang, Vietnam.

    And it is crazy that the USA leads the world in the number of deaths, which is still increasing, while discussing reopening sooner than later.
