Then she ordered a bottle of wine, which he delivered to her room. 

she ordered wine, but what she really wanted was sausage.

Was this quid pro quo? Wine for sex?

Lol. It's not really a flaw in New Zealand's quarantine system, just a flaw in humanity.

You can't fix stupid.

How big was she? How many liters of wine. Did a song come with the wine?

Not stupid. Human. Besides, there are numerous risks every time people have "inappropriate encounters", and the risk of Covid-19 where neither partner was known to be exposed in a country where it barely exists is not even among the top 5.

man working at the quarantine hotel was supposed to be the last line of defense.

the two started passing notes to each other, including one written on the back of a face mask. 

a security manager sent to investigate found the pair together in what authorities are describing as an inappropriate encounter, one in which physical distancing wasn't maintained.

I enjoyed reading the story up to this line, quite dramatic and full of implications :) deserves to be a bluckbsuter film.

Room service?

Video or I don't believe it.

Plus, the article doesn't say she transferred any disease or virus to the man or did I miss that sentence?

The answer is to put him into the same room with her for 14 more days. There's a huge difference between bumping uglies for a few hours and being stuck in a contained space with a stranger for 14 days.

Authorities breathed a sigh of relief after both returned negative coronavirus tests.

The pregnancy test results are still forthcoming.

One or two persons, in this case, arrogance, put New Zealand on the back-foot.

The actions of a few can bring disaster to many.

The virus will be with us, in one form or another for a very long time.

Drop your guard at your peril. Here in New Zealand, we fought hard to get where we are, but we get let down

by selfish individuals.

Stay safe people.

“99.7% Survival Rate Killer Virus”

Retirement homes are full of 65+ adults sleeping around. Mom said it is worse than college dorms in the late 1970s. Some of her 75+ yr old friends did act like kids, however.

Yup. STIs are rampant because women live longer than men so there are men mixing the stew with multiple partners.
