    Only 20 days supply if we continue to test at 15,000 per day.
    Only 524,414 tests done in New Zealand from 22 January in the last seven months.
    So why prior to the latest community outbreak were they not testing all the staff at the border? There was no pressure on the testing regime when there was no community transmission. It is inexplicably incompetent. A monumental cockup.

    When you say “now, they must also accept blame,” it means finding fault because to blame is not just to hold responsible but to find fault with.
    Yes, that's what I meant.

    Getting no response on the other thread so I figured I would repeat it here.

    moka, be so kind as to explain the exit strategy from NZ's level one and associated closed borders. I'd really love to know so that I can explain to my grandchildren why it is they are still paying of the debt in thirty years time. I don't recall Labour telling us when they committed to spending 150+ billion dollars.

    From what I can tell it must be based on the gamble of a vaccine becoming available to the public within the next 12 months (backdated to April). How's that working out?

    At what point do we abandon the closed borders and write of 150+ billion to experience?

    No answer to this moka? Any Labourite care to enlighten me as to what the exit strategy is?

    Crusher isn't going to let it in either so maybe they will have the same exit strategy?

    I do wonder how long we can keep the current settings though.
    It seems 'experts' think elimination is still the best strategy, depends on which experts you choose like for all other advice.
