Inside info whanau: The Labour Government is trying to EXTEND the Covid-19 Health Response Act 2020 until 2024.
They promised to end it in May 2023 but ARE NOT GOING TO.
The 10% increase in mortality is being put down to “covid-19”.
A Big Lie that will be used to justify further repressive action.

New Zealand has just recorded its highest death count in a 12-month period – driven by the Covid pandemic and our ageing population.
Statistics New Zealand today released its year-on-year update on births and deaths between September 2021 and September 2022.
It showed a “sharp” 10 per cent increase in the mortality rate, with 38,052 registered deaths up from 34,578 in the previous 12 months.
Factors in the marked rise include the highly contagious Omicron variant sweeping through New Zealand at the start of this year, taking a deadly toll on our most senior citizens alongside our ageing population.
This year’s record tally follows an earlier period in the pandemic when the Government’s strict border control measures saw an absence of seasonal respiratory illnesses circulating in the community in 2020.
Today’s data aligns with the arrival of the Delta variant in New Zealand, which saw a four-month-long lockdown of northern regions and a nationwide vaccination campaign to protect against the virus.
Of these, 5 per cent – or 2025 deaths – were attributed to Covid, according to the Ministry of Health data.
