    Scroll down. Sorted by country. Yes quite a few have no cases.
    Is that in the order of the countries when they got it ? After re checking no I doubt that, Its in order of total people in that country.

    But not order of country, like china got it first....then who, and next etc...... ?
    Im not trying to be difficult it just comes naturally.

    They have it sorted by number of cases, however, you can click on the headings and re-sort it to whatever you like, deaths, alphabetical and so on.
    Not in order of who first though.

    China was first anyway.

    After that, who cares? It doesn't matter.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Look how long it took for NZ to get a case, must have been here spreading undetected for a while though with all the Chinese tourists and tourists in general we had here, perhaps that's why each day we seem to have the same number of new cases, don't count on the lock-down ending in 4 weeks although it would be great if it did.

    I am calm, My family is an at risk family.
    5 out of 6 asthmatics, 4 out of 6 heart conditions, 1 out of 6 kidney problems.
    If we get it, its likely to be a major thing in our family, we are in lockdown, we are being cautious, we have 1 designated shopper,
    2 essential workers, 1 of whom sees random new people daily who travel the country - trucks from all over NZ the risk of catching it goes up, if it gets worse, and the odds might be it will get worse.

    And I was just curious, I dont watch all the news, or read all the articles, I try not to trawl the web for useless info on this or any sickness subject.
    I am off work due to the lock down............ unsure if a job to go back to.
    I am also full time carer for 3 grandchildren while their mum and uncle go to work everyday, shift workers too, so my amount of adult company is very low at the moment.

    Calm is good, but its not a easy road to stay on when you look at each member of my family and think, we are all at risk.

    Thank you

    Thank you,
    I know there are people out there worse off, doesnt pay to dwell on it, and I count each day above ground as a good one
