    We went early after learning from other countries mistakes. We went for a total 4 week lockdown of everything other that essential services. We are not out of the woods yet, but are only half way through the lockdown period, but the outcome is looking positive. Stay safe everyone.

    And congratulations to your Prime Minister for letting children know that The Easter Bunny and The Tooth Fairy are Essential Workers, so they will be On The Job when needed. A great way to make use of Make-Believe.

    As opposed to the Make-Believe that comes out of Washington...

    This may be Parody, but it is also truth.

    I'm glad the USA was able to lead by example and show the rest of the world what not to do. USA #1!

    In the past Jerry your country has often got it right. Unfortunately not so much this time. But we send you all the Aroha we can spare.

    Our PM has grown into the job, during some pretty horrendous times. First the Christchurch slaughter and now a global pandemic. She has my utmost admiration.

    I thought we agreed that this Coronavirus stuff was to be relegated to the General forum pages?
    Thanks for the link, Kurt, that was very good.

    As a skeptic, I would say it is predominantly due to their very low population density.
