    You probably could argue that Covid did get them, in a round about way.

    Had they not attended the Covid Protest they would probably still be alive.

    Let it be a warning to others.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    You are totally deluded if you believe we will ever have "Control". Unless you are talking about control of the population rather than of the virus.

    Well we have control of every other Virus introduced to NZ and we will gain Control of this one.

    What makes you think we won’t.

    Remember, Control is not Elimination.

    The great advantage we have with Covid is the speed at which a Vaccine was developed.

    I’m looking forward to some luminary opening a restaurant for the “Unvaccinated”, preferably across the road from one only for the “Fully Vaccinated”.

    Tougher Covid measures needed to stop 100,000 more deaths, warns top German virologist:

    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

    yes, as i've said before we still need social measures. the more you let it spread the harder the measures you need. we need to have enough measures that it stays dampened down and still allows us to function.

    So it's going to be a bit like running the gauntlet, every time you leave your safe area, your house, you stand a chance of getting covid if you are unlucky enough to be in an area where a covid infected person has been in the last hour or so where there is inadequate ventilation or what ever if your masking or your vaccinations are not quite up to the task for whatever reason.

    Especially risky if you are over, say 60 years old.
