    Still got to think just how lucky we are to be in New Zealand...
    With the lockdown we are looking at a softer landing on our Healthcare resources ... In New Zealand we have 550 Ventalitors... hopefully more are arriving....As of yesterday Christchurch Hospital still has no corona patients!... All going to plan in 10 days to 2 weeks we will see peak cases on the daily... last 3 days have seen declines in daily numbers of infections...

    There's a great post by Jacinda Adern showing a factory in Wanganui now churning out 80,000 surgical masks per day, 7 days a week.
    Once we have a few million for NZ, should be able to start exporting them.

    Lockdowns are a short term stopgap solution unfortunately and, as Italy is showing, may not even be effective. South Korea model is the only way forwards that isn't economically crippling. We'll just have to scale our testing capability before the tidal wave hits us.

    I will say the road toll and criminal acts will come down in the next few weeks.

    Road toll - yes.

    Criminal acts - not sure.
    • some new criminal acts around people can offend against (like breaking the lock down conditions) - and they do.
    • plenty more unemployed people with lots of time on their hands ...
    • a paradise for hackers ... lots of people accessing interesting data (company networks) from hardly secured (home) networks ...
    • family violence started already to soar ... victims of abusers are now 24/7 locked up with them.


    I give you, though that the character of criminal offences is likely to change. We will see, whether it is an improvement.

    As the $NZ is dropping we should be looking to export more products and hopefully attract overseas companies to set up here,creating new jobs is going to be vital

    I wonder if someone could calculate the number of lives that will be saved due to air pollution decreasing.

    I doubt it. However there will be a few wild guesses.
