Is NZ currently in hard lockdown? 😔
I hope get better soon. Still long road to reach herd immunity?
@txusinho Thanks. Yes, we're in hard lockdown. While we want herd immunity, too, unlike just about anywhere else, we're still angling for total elimination in NZ. We've only had a few thousand cases of Covid in NZ so far, mostly in managed isolation (people returning to NZ from overseas Covid hotspots) and about 50 deaths... so we're still hopeful, but this is now the Delta variant that's had a bit of community transmission (but only in a couple regions).
I have a friend who is a doctor (x-ray operator) and this last year he is watching a lot of people with very strange pathologies.
His bet is mental health is suffering as much as "regular health"
