Here in Aotearoa, we have had only 5 confirmed cases and no new ones for about a week. Many tests have been done and come back negative. People seem to be taking this seriously. We've done a bit of a stock up. But frankly, we already keep the freezers and pantries pretty full.
It is very unclear the extent to which it will hit us. I do wonder how it will be over winter. We already have issues with poor housing stock and people getting sick. These conditions would exacerbate the spread of covid 19.
