New Zealand Discharges Last Hospitalized COVID-19 Patient & Reports No New Cases

Science and social distancing work.   Despite what SPTV host Tucker Carlson claims.    Hugs

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been praised for her handling of the coronavirus outbreak in the country, which included early restrictions to keep numbers of cases low, along with empathetic live streams and urging people to “be kind.” The leader even took a 20% pay cut, along with other top members in her cabinet that will remain in effect for six months.

Neighboring Australia and South Korea have also significantly flattened the curve of their countries’ COVID-19 outbreaks with early contact tracing and testing. Following staggering drop in numbers, both countries have started to ease restrictions.


  1. That last sentence in the write-up is the zinger! Notice it says that AFTER a drop in numbers, they started to ease restrictions.

    But what does our bigly smart genius president do? He ignores that 100,000 people in the U.S. have died from the virus and says … “Go for it, folks! Get back to enjoying life and we’ll all pretend it never happened.”

    • Hello Nan. The president tweeted 25 tweets before his twitter account mentioned the over 100,000 people who died. So he spent hours texting with no thought of anything but himself and his anger / grievances before a staffer thought to add in a sympathy tweet.

      Your last part is too spot on. Now we know that red states are withholding or changing the number of sick and hospitalized and testing from CV19. One state admitted to putting out the information to be deliberately misleading to favor opening up.

      I have just listened to CBSN host insist it was all a hoax to hurt the stock market and that we should have never done stay at home or lock downs. The host claims that as we are now back to normal ( yes he said back to normal ) it shows the entire time spent closing everything was a huge mistake.

      The people with money have proven they can protect themselves, and their goal now is to convince the rest of us that we don’t need to protect our selves. We need to go back to everything the way it was when they were raking in huge amounts of money and life looked great for them. They really see the rest of us as live stock to be used. Things to be used for their enrichment. I have gotten very disgusted with the wealthy over this whole thing. Texas Lt. Gov. Patrick, who is wealthy, claimed that older people understood the need to sacrifice their lives to give their grand children the great economic country they had. The old people were willing to die to keep the country open and the money flowing to the upper incomes, as god intended. Notice he did not include himself in that group. How sickening. How clear the way they see the lower incomes. It really pisses me off. Especially now that we can clearly see that other countries have done things better and that the people in those countries live better than we do. Hugs

        • Hello Brookingslib. Yet the cave dwellers that make up 40% or more of the US think a women can never do anything as well as a man, and the evangelicals think they must be home, silent, and obedient. People here do not realize we waged a war and a media campaign against such treatment of women by the Taliban and Muslims, but we tolerate it from evangelical Christians and conservatives. The USA has gone from putting people on the moon to demanding women must not give a public prayer. I see the fast creeping Christian evangelical take over of the US and it terrifies me. Just today I read about a county clerk in the south denied a legal marriage certificate to an atheist couple demanding they get their marriage done by a religious authority. Hugs

          • The religious component is a whole other issue Scottie. Those people are not going away quietly. You should be terrified.
