Anyway bet we would like to go into lock down with abe or any other politician eh boys !
0 ( +0 / -0 )
If Abe and the rest of the world leaders had any brains at all they would have stopped this virus in january at their borders, but they persisted and let it permeate and develop in their own countries knowing full well it was a raging fire storm.
These dumb pollies are responsible for this terrible situation and economic destruction, get rid of them all , a smart politician would have closed the borders months ago.
Why now does everyone have to live with the threat and stress of a destroyed economy and no freedom to go freely outside and carry out their normal daily life, who choose this for them?
Abe , Adern, Scomo, Trump, Boris, and the rest all complicit and all should be held accountable in the same court as the leaders of china in THE HAGUE !

All Govts have dropped the ball on this, China should have been shut down, no one out once it was discovered in january. Sorry if you think its not PC but better to isolate the source than to make the rest of the world go through a catastrophe.
If china was locked down when it was first discovered the rest of the world would not have had an issue now.
Most countries politicians let the tourists continue to wander amongst us for weeks knowing full well the virus was spreading. Either they knew or they didnt know, and if they didnt know that then they are too stupid to be in the positions they are in governing us !
I say they all knew full well what they were doing !

The ministry said the airport's quarantine station miscalculated
So govt personal screwed the people !
Been happening since the beginning of time.
When a govt or anyone in a govt screws up they should be held accountable to the people and should also suffer greater consequences than a citizen would, these personal are supposed to be our trust guardians.

Just simply disengage china from the rest of the world now , do not accept anyone or anything coming out of china and send it nothing. Close it down, Isolate it, do not let it back into the world community again. It cannot be trusted.

On Thursday, tabloids blared “Tokyo Lockdown Panic” and “Tokyo Destruction".
and the media accepts no responsibilty for its over the top headlines ?
Shouldnt it be held accountable? Should it not be permitted for making stupid headlines ?
Create panic fear and heart attacks, so long as we sell more papers and instill more hysteria and fear, who cares right?

Everyone has it by now, some it affects more than others, some do not even notice they have it.
0 ( +6 / -6 )
Many people have it , some show symptoms, some show bad symptoms, some show really bad symptoms, its just that many it wont affect too much, so they wont bother getting checked and if they do the chances of convincing a hospital to test are slim to none.,

testing and social distancing should have been the norm here weeks ago.
Japan should have blocked entry from China in January and in fact the whole world should isolated China in january, now we all have to pay the price for our politicians stupidity and bad decisions.
Not happy and still want to know where do i submit the bill to for the damage done by Chinas leaders
Do not ever ever again let this happen, next time just shut down the god damn place nothing out of china next time until its cured.

She should have quarantined everyone entering the country 3 or 4 weeks ago and stopped any incoming flights from china at the same time. Instead she mishandled this whole scenerio at the expense of many innocents. No jobs, lost incomes, collpase of many business, households deteriorating into chaos all could have been avoided, she had a chance, especially being NZ is an isolated place to begin with, but imposing quarantine would not have been PC now would it ............no love for the muppet at all.

When i was a young kid in the 60s & 70s smoking was in every movie, every commercial and every where, it was cool and promoted & supported by society, but times have changed.
I smoked for over 40 years, quit about 10 years ago and was smoking upto 4 packs a day, I can tell you if you smoke now in this world today you are a flaming fool.
It is not that hard to quit, they even have doctors who can prescribe meds to make quitting so god damn easy you will kick yourself for not doing it sooner.,
Now an ex smoker with no tolerance for any one who smokes and their sticking filthy smelling aura.

China needs to be taught a lesson , the rest of the world needs to boycott china its goods and its tourism, the leaders of china need to be stood on the mat in front of the world court in the Hague to answer the charges of negligence and public endangerment, along with destruction of the world economy, and the deaths of 1,000s.
I know it will never happen but it is what should be happening.
Never forget and never forgive !

I read they let a bunch of cruise ship passengers disembark in sydney over the weekend, so it seems that the govts know full well what they are doing and their intent is obvious.
Spread the media hype , Infect, lock down, control impose new rules, make everyone submit, Agneda what number was it please refresh my recollection of it.

How any one can think this muppet adern instills confidence or is a great leader just shows how screwed the world is.
Last year she took everyones guns this year she puts everyone in lock up, martial law hard at work for you all, right here.
U.N. Agenda coming right at you !
If she was a great leader she would have shut the door on getting into NZ weeks ago instead of letting the contagion in and letting it wander around aimlessly unchecked, or self isolated.
Now everyone gets a social security cheque form the social welfare dept because they cant go to work.
Next step is everyone wears the same commie uniform.........

She should have put all travelers into NZ into quarantine weeks ago, not that silly self imposed isolation thing.
Now she is forcing everyone into lock down because she made bad decisions weeks ago .
People have told me that at the airports in NZ there was no checks or monitoring on anyone going in except to fill in a form of where they would be staying as normal, its almost as if she wanted this to happen.
People who went through the Auckland airport told me they were amazed at how easy simple and basic it was entering the country during this crisis. Very lax , no one with any concern or temperature equipment nothing at all, no sense of emergency or crisis.
I know the adernophiles will be besides them selves with thinking how great she has done but really she has completely screwed this up.

NZ imported every case of this virus and let them wander around. Adern thinking they would self isolate, fairly dumb really, and then decides to give the whole country home detention.
She should have used some intelligence first and made everyone going to NZ go into quarantine leaving the rest of the country to continue living normally.
Being NZ is isolated anyway but hey we know you adern lovers will all think she has done the right thing.
She could have and should have avoided locking NZ down.
Imagine if they lock down Kanto ? Could they ? How would that go ?
Maybe like the evacuation of tokyo when the nuclear disaster struck? They simply could not do it. Logistic impossibility do you think?

WHO is partly to blame for the world wide spread, so now we are still supposed to listen to what this moron at the top of says, and he spouts of about china and how it succeeded to beating the virus?
WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus needs to also be taken to task for his irresponsible behaviour earlier during the outbreak.
He is not capable of doing his damn job properly.

The old 20% at fault rule gets most people at some time or other, simply explained to me one day as oh but if you wernt there then he wouldnt have crashed into you, so therefore you have to accept some blame..... WTF Japanese logic is totally illogical.
But yeah, touch some one here even in defense and you can be charged, crazy laws carried out by crazy police men n women.

said New South Wales state health minister Brad Hazzard.
Any one else see the irony in this guys name ?
Seems some not very clever people in the australian govt making some not very clever decisions , letting 2700 people off a cruise ship to just wander around Sydney. Maybe they think its ok but Im sure there are others who would suggest otherwise.

Who pays the workers while the govt has ordered business to close, most people no work, no pay, no rent, no food, no bills getting paid, who covers this ?
Tough for many with out income, is china picking up the tab for this, or your local MP or Mayor, or who, how, when, how much?
Im sure many many people would like to know the answer.

The Media has alot to answer for hasnt it, spreading fear and panic amongst the feeble minded idiots who believe everything on the internet and what their govt spews to them.
Dumber than a bag of rocks.
Use logic, think about it, consider what the reality is then make a rational decision, dont believe the hype n B. S. being spreading and churned out by the fear mongering media machine.
This is the 2019 version of the flu, spreading like the flu does, yes it kills old people like flu does. All older or sick humans have been in danger of dying from flu since the beginning of man kind, so use precautions, use sanitation think like an intelligent person and do not behave like a headless chook.
This unbelievable panic and hysteria is just ludicrous.
Some one needs to be held accountable, either the media or the idiots for spreading their stupidity and fear. Which is the question?

Just came back from Costco, very normal shopping trip, plenty of paper for the crapper there.
No mania, hysteria or panic, most things plentiful, but tissues for sneezing running noses was out of stock was all i could see.
Aeon Mall had pallet loads of toilet paper too the other day.
I cant for the life of me see why the aussies have gone over board on panic buying when they are mostly a very grounded bunch of people.
Buy Italian pasta and jars of sauce , it keeps for ages and great for emergencies.

Govts shutting down peoples work, businesses, jobs and livelihoods, they should be underwriting peoples pay cheques and salaries then too, people still need to pay rent, mortgages, loans and put food on the table.
