After five more days and one weak case of the virus
The United States and the United Kingdom could learn a thing or two from New Zealand.

Our response to the Covid-19 pandemic has been hailed the "most impressive" by public relations experts around the world.

The government's quick action in the early days of the virus' arrival into the country meant we were able to stamp out widespread community transmission, and prevent tens of thousands of people from becoming infected and dying, as was originally predicted.

The news over here just keeps on getting better six days in a row with zero cases of the virus.
Only twelve active (monitored) cases now exist in our country.
Sadly we lost twenty one of our most frail citizens who were aged and ill before the virus stuck.
I am hoping our Australian neighbours are fairing similarly on a state by state basis as our economies are going to become dependent on each other in the next period of time...

Yes Australia is doing well, NSW and Vic are the worst states. Unfortunately here in Queensland we had one more death yesterday, a strange one, Covid-19 was only determined at the autopsy. The chap was 30, the youngest in the country. Lived and died in a remote mining town where there had been no previous cases. He had not left town for over six months. The authorities are investigating.

Wow! I know the virus has a long tale but that seems a bit extreme. I wonder if there was an underlying health problem in this victim.

Yes there was, he had been off work sick for some while, he had some ongoing lung condition and he thought this was the problem, till his wife came home from work and found him dead.

The health authorities are contact tracing to see how the infection came into this remote town, no conclusive result yet.

Queensland Covid-19 Stats:
Population: Just over 5,000,000
Confirmed cases: 1058
Recovered: 1044
Deaths: 7
Still ill: 7


Australia Covid-19 Stats:
Population: Just over 25 Million
Confirmed cases: 7150
Recovered: 6566
Deaths: 103
Still ill: 481

The Queensland stats seem to be slightly better than those of NZ. That has to be a good thing. NSW appears to be getting a bit of a hammering I guess the population to be higher or more dense.

Well the NSW Premier is certainly more dense, she starts opening the place up this weekend and they have the worse figures in Australia. She wants the QLD border opened, but the QLD Premier is saying 'NO' we don't want your cases up here.

NSW Covid-19 Stats:
Population: Just over 7.99 million
Confirmed cases: 3090
Recovered: 2670

My goodness I hope she is not on the "make NSW great again" bandwagon. We all know how that works out

She certainly tends that way, getting the economy going again seems to be more important than stopping people getting sick, with her. Fortunately saner heads in other states are holding her at bay, for the moment.

Unfortunately we have here in Queensland one greedy businessman, and former politician who plans on challenging the border closures in a high court constitutional hearing. Clive Palmer is the prick, egged on by two right wing politicians, Peter Dutton and Pauline Hansen.

Fortunately with the speed the high court operates at, things may be back to normal before any hearing is held.

Doctors have reported that the 30 year old who died, had returned a false positive for Covid-19. He, in fact, did not die from the disease, however he did suffer from epilepsy and asthma and appears to have recently caught the flu, however the exact cause of death has not been determined, but Covid-19 has now been ruled out.

Yesterday (Sunday) we found out that there have been no new Covid-19 cases for NZ in the last 16 days. If another 12 case free days elapse the virus will be classified as eliminated in our country.
We also enjoyed a 24 hour period of not having the POTA in the news headlines. That was a short lived joy as he is back in the news this morning..
