The

Director-General

New
Zealand now has 155 cases, including 13 probable cases which would be
counted as confirmed, he said.

The
number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 has risen by 40, officials

Director-General
of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield made the announcement at 1pm.

New
Zealand now has 155 cases, including 13 probable cases which would be
counted as confirmed, he said.

“In
these [probable] cases, this is a person who has returned a negative
laboratory test but the clinician looking after the person has
diagnosed them as a probable case due to their exposure history and
their clinical symptoms,” Dr Bloomfield told media.

“These
cases are actually treated as if they were a positive
laboratory-confirmed case and the actions taken are the same for
confirmed cases.”

Twelve
cases have recovered, while six people are currently in hospital in a
stable condition.

A
total of four cases are classified as community transmission, three
in Auckland and one in Wairarapa. Contact tracing is underway for
these.

Dr
Bloomfield said around a third of the new cases could be linked to
overseas travel or to close contacts of an already confirmed case.

More
than 900 lab tests were carried out yesterday and more than 8300
tests have been completed now.

Dr
Bloomfield said it was important New Zealand move to alert level 4 as
soon as possible.

“There
is a clear consensus among public health professionals, scientists
and a wide range of health professionals that it is better to do this
soon rather than later, and doing so gives New Zealand the best
chance of breaking the chain of community transmission,” he
said.

“This
will require all our efforts and I strongly urge all New Zealanders
to play their part.”

The following has made me see RED.  



See how the government propaganda agency, RNZ describes it.




There
is confusion over whether The Warehouse will keep its 92 Red Sheds
open as a supplier of essential consumer goods, as other companies
are shutting down.

Big
businesses are taking different approaches to the looming national
lockdown.


Is a lockdown a lockdown?!


The
level four lockdown of the country begins at 11.59pm on Wednesday as
the country tries to stop the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus.

The
Warehouse says its 92 Red Sheds will stay open as a supplier of
essential consumer goods, but its other brands – Noel Leeming,
Torpedo 7 and Warehouse Stationery will be shut.

“In
the past two weeks the group has seen unprecedented demand for
essential items across all our brands. Goods sold included essential
items to prepare themselves for the mandatory isolation period of at
least four weeks,” the company said in a statement to the Stock
Exchange.

It
said shoppers would be required to keep to social distancing rules,
and there would be a limit on some purchases. However, the
Warehouse’s online shopping service would continue and contactless
deliveries made.

But
at the latest government briefing this afternoon, MBIE spokesperson
Paul Stocks could not say whether The Warehouse was considered an
essential business, and whether it would be permitted to open.

“We
are working though those firms that will be allowed to remain open.

All dairies and small businesses have to close their doors which, despite government offers of assistance, will probably go to the wall while corporations like the Warehouse intend to stay open.


This was a comment I got on Facebook:



The
gov’t has NOT given the Warehouse authority to stay open .

The Warehouse announced this on their own behalf , and watched the
share price skyrocket before the regulating authority shut down
trading in Warehouse shares . Apparently they have been
in financial difficulties and it looks like this was
staged so that
some shareholders could make a quick profit by fraudulent means
before they took to the parachutes
.
