New Zealand’s decision to eradicate the coronavirus was as frightening as Lalsa, the prime minister, Jacinda Adern“There was a point at which he realized that the health system could not cope with a major catastrophe,” he said.
When the virus began to hit Europe earlier in the year, Adren said, the only two option countries were considering a commodity waiver or a curve quadruple. He really chose the latter.
“This is where we started, because we didn’t really think it was possible to end it,” he said. But his thinking soon changed.
“I remember my chief science adviser brought me a graph that showed me what kind of flat the curve would like to do. New Zealand. And where our hospital and health capacity was. And the curves weren’t sitting below that line. So we knew that flattening the curve was not enough for us. ”
Arden said he had no worries that annihilation would be impossible, as it would have saved lives if New Zealand had not reached there. “The alternative is to set a low target, and still fire the wrong way,” he said.
There are many umps along the way. When a handful of unknown cases began to surface in August, Adorn found himself defending President Donald Trump’s wildly exaggerated claims that there had been a major resurgence and that it was “over for New Zealand.” it has been. It’s all over. ”
“Was the word angry?” Adren was referring to Trump’s remarks. He said that while the new cases were being considered in depth, “such a statement was a misrepresentation of the situation in New Zealand”.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
New Zealand’s response to the virus has been most successful, with action taken by China, Taiwan and Thailand at the beginning of the epidemic. The country of 5 million has counted only 25 deaths and banned the spread of Covid-19, allowing people to return to workplaces, schools and permanent sports stadiums without hindrance. .
After the border was closed and severely locked in March, New Zealand expanded without a community community in 102 days. But then came the August outbreak in Auckland, which is unknown, but probably overseas.
“We thought we were going through the worst. And so it was a real psychological trauma for people. And I felt it, too. So it was very, very tough to eat, ”said Arden.
He said he would model different spreading scenes but one that was “the worst case scenario you could ever imagine”.
He said it was because it had spread to many groups in densely populated areas, and some of those who had caught it were attending large church gatherings. But after a second lockout in Auckland, New Zealand eradicated the disease.
Arden said she sometimes feels confident in her reactions to her role as a leader, despite the touch of Impster syndrome.
“You just have to go with it. There is something to be done, ”he said. “Any self-doubt that I have, as a human being, doesn’t mean that there is always a shift in suspicion around what needs to be done.”
Armandon said that in order to begin to return to normalcy in the world, everyone needs to work harder to get vaccinated and establish a vaccination certification process that will allow people to travel.
He said he was concerned that the economic impact of the virus was exacerbating wealth inequality, and that New Zealanders had rejected earlier predictions by pushing home prices to an all-time high.
There was a psychology behind New Zealand’s financial obsession with housing that needed to be examined, otherwise “we will not understand how to move people back to other parts of the economy.”
Ardern said he plans to spend some summer in South Golisform to spend time with his fiance, Clark Gayford, and their two-year-old daughter, Nave. “I’m not doing anything,” he said with a laugh. “But I will be by the sea. That would be great. ”
