Oh right I get it now you’re another member of the Dr Glover cult. Enough said. Perhaps they should put up some Dr Glover posters around the island now she’s not here to watch over us for a week? You are literally willing this to be a worse Lockdown that previous ones just to suit the doomsday plan in your head. 

@CowMan

I too am a member of that cult. If you aren't, I have a question for you. Why wouldn't you want to use Dr Glover to provide genomics in 24/36 hours that would potentially show where the paths are? Even if it just showed that everything that the track and trace team had worked out was correct, you aren't losing anything. If it was able to link an unexplained case, you gain something. Either way, you won't be worse off. So why not use her?

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

I don't think anyone wants a lockdown. You're suggesting that anyone who might be questioning why on-island expertise is being passed over, at the expense of reducing insight into transmission chains, clearly wants one. I think you've got that backwards.

Actually we've got 85,000 people who've been on a "How to handle a global pandemic course".  It's call Living Through the Last Year.  If some people haven't been paying attention, it's hardly the fault of the rest of us.

We live in a connected world, where information can be found in seconds.  We can research and compare government strategies; read scientific papers and examine the data they use;  look at the effectiveness of communications strategies by thousands of authorities local, regional and national.  That's how I can learn more about an outbreak literally on the other side of the world in Auckland than I can about one where I live.

There's a boat in the morning (usually) :thumbsup:

What would be the harm to let Dr Glover help?

Cutting you nose to spite your face is standard practice for Comin.

We don't expect our government and administration to be perfect.    But we do expect them to be open and accountable when things have gone wrong.      They'd be more worthy of respect if they came out and said ' really sorry folks, we've ballsed it up but we'll do our utmost to plan to make sure it really doesn't happen again'   Too much to expect in an election year?

They are spinning at such a rotational velocity at the moment I fear for their health.

No I’m not I used two sentences separated by a full stop to address two separate points. The Glover issue has got nothing to do with wanting a Lockdown it was a poor point to make really in the reply to my post. Although I’m sure many people like Annonymouse do really believe that if Dr Glover was at the helm we’d all be living in a utopia ten times better than Arderns New Zealand where we’d have even forgotten his to spell the word Coronavirus.

It's not going to happen.

It's all about saving face on the international stage.

If the world discovers that we've been running on luck and balls ups, they get a bit twitchy about investing here.

Well, here's a quite simple follow-up question.

Do you think our present situation was avoidable, and why?

She seems as bad herself to be honest. From her Twitter attacks she sounds basically like a female Donald Trump where it’s either “My way or the Highway” I’m sure government has been to blame for a lot to do with the issues but you get the impression of someone who literally screams “Not a team player” from the rooftops in literally everything public facing that they do. So I’d say some of the reasons why they won’t let her help are perhaps her own despite her being eminently qualified to input.

1.Yes

2. By government having better oversight over a business it 100% owns.

No-shows are in the main shits.

No-shows cost the UK NHS many £100millions per year. The dentist sort it out ok over here, mine charge £20 if you don't turn up without good reason. Same needs to be done for doctors and this vaccine. The problem is usually because people feel ok when they know they should be at appointment and can't be arsed. Many genuine reasons too of course and many of those can be sorted by a courtesy phone call.

No-shows are in the main shits.

Rather than thinking all of those missed doses are due to the patient it's just possible that there might be something wrong with the method of the appointment system. Dates and times given over the phone are likely to be misinterpreted/misheard or confused when you are dealing with elderly people which, in the main, these people will have been.
