Covid 19.
#51
Day 7 back at level 2, it seems we had 6 folk get Covid 19 while on a cruise, they are all recovered and back home now sothat takes the figures up a little, now 1,505 cases with 96% recovered the deaths remain at 21..

Things are still really quiet here, we're still only allowed out for shopping, to see our doctors or go to the chemist for any medications.. Our airline hasn't started up as yet, except to bring any kiwis home from overseas, it seems really quiet with no traffic and no flights passing over these days.. I haven't heard when we'll drop to level 1 as yet, we have a news update at 1.00 p.m. today, given we've had no new cases for several days now there may be some mention of level 1 today..

Day 8 back at level 2, we've now had a little over 8 weeks of lockdown here, the bars and restaurants are all reopening today after an 8 week closure, numbers in each place will be limited and those going out will need to book in and limit their group sizes, no more than 10 people in one group going to the bars or restaurants for now, anyone going out will have to log into the bar or restaurants app so they can do the tracing if anyone gets Covid 18 while out..

As of 1.00 p.m. yesteday we'd had no new cases of Covid 19, so still 1,505 cases of which 96% have recovered and one person in hospital at present, our deaths remain at 21 to date so hopefully it won't be a long wait until we drop to level 1 and closer to normality..

It remains hard to get things done at present, a simple visit to see the doctor currently means making an appointment, then going through 20 questions on arrival, and having the temerature taken before seeing the doctor, while it's understandable it's a little frustrating all round, it'll be good when the world can return to some kind of normal again..

Day 9 back at level 2, the 1.00p.m. report yesterday said no new cases of Covid 19 here, so still 1,504 confirmed cases of which 97% have now recvered, we had no new deaths, so the toll still stands at 21 people..

All the bars, clubs and restaurants reopened yesterday, I haven't heard of anyone breaking the rules or such as a result whch is good, no doubt after over 8 weeks of no bars or restaurants there was a few people drinking more than they should've, no doubt there's a few self inflicted sore heads this morning, lol.. It's good to have things slowly returning to normal, hopefully our airline will be able to start flying again soon and those who drive can get back to travelling for work or holidays out of town..

Day 19 back at level 2, we didn't get our usual report at 1.00 p.m. yesterday, I did catch some news on TV last night saying our figures are still the same as yesterday which is good..

Our government has been in talks with the Australian government to start a trans tasman bubble which would mean that folk from either country could travel freely and notworry about going into isolation on the other side once getting there, from what I can gather, Aussie are still getting new cases of Covid there, albeit in smll amounts now, so it coud be a while before things start, if it happens..

Day 20 back on level 2 and our figures remain the same as yesterday which is good news for us.. At present gatherings are limited to 10 people, our government has said if the figures stayed down the limit would be increased, something the folk having either weddings or funerals will be grateful for as they will get to have up to 100 attend, I believe the governments meeting tomorrow to review things and discuss what can be eased up on..

Both the maori and the pacific islanders traditionally have a lot of folk attend weddings and funerals, so they'll be quite pleased to have the gathering number increased, especially after the government said 100 people, then dropped it to 10 people, there was a big fuss made about that change, maori families tend to be fairly big once all the aunts, uncles, cousins and such are all added up, it's very easy to have over 100 at a funeral so going up to 100 at gatherings will be a welcome move..

Day 12 is what today should be, it seems we're no longer getting our daily news reports on Covid 19, at least not while there's no new cases or deaths to report, there wasn't much on the TV news last night, all we got was how bad things are overseas at present, it seems New York has now had some 10,000 deaths from Covid 19 which considering there's now been some 80,000 deaths through the whole of the YS, new Yorks figures make very grim reading, it makes me think we've been very lucky to date with our figures being very low at present, we still have had 1,305 cases of which 97$ have recovered and 21 deaths to date, these figures are over the whole country..

Day 13 and we've only had one case of Covid in the last 10 days.. It looks like the groups can increase to 100 from friday which is good for those having weddings or funerals, they're limited to 10 people at present..

Day 14 of level 2, it seems we have to go 4 weeks without a new case of Covid in order to drop to level 1, we had a case pop up on saturday so the countdown starts again from then.. On the upside, gatherings can increase from 10 to 100 on friday, that means folk will get to have proper weddings and funerals again..

Day 165 at level 2 today, we have a little over 24 hours to go before our gatherings can be increased, we;ll be allowed up to 100 people at an event or party as of mid dat friday..

To date we've had 1,504 cases of Covid of which almost 98% have recovered, still the 21 deaths to date..
In order to drop to level 1 we have to go 28 days without a new case of Covid happening, so 22 days and counting, hopefully the government saying 29 days of no new cases may get folk following the rules so life gets a little easier at level 1..

Day 15 of level 2 here, nothing new to add today as we've had no new cases, the gathering size changes in about 2 hours from a maximum of 10 people per group up to 100, thankfully things are going in the right direction here.. How is the Covid ib your country, have you got on top of it yet?

Day 16 back at level 2 and we;ve had the increase in size of gatherings since luncg time yesterday, surprisingly I didn't hear ant parties near by last night.. The bars, clubs and restaurants were able yo take increased sizes of groups too, the restaurants for example could take a group booling for say 30 people, but had to have a 2 metre soace between one group and another and only have one server per group, that had me feeling for the staff as they may have had groups of 40 or more and one person was expected to serve both drinks and meals to the whole group, that will keep them really busy for a while, all the bars, clubs and restaurants have been closed for 8 weeks so a lot of prope would've been keen to get out last night..

Day 17 back at level 2, no new cases for the past week, so 3 more weeks of no new cases and we get to drop to level 1 and a few more relaxed rules, we don't know what will be relaxed at level 1 as yet which is kind of sad, if folk had something to aim for they'd have an incentive not to break the current rules..

Day 18 back at level 2 and no news today, the xases of Covid remain at 1,505 with about 98% recovered and still the 21 deaths to date.. Knock on wood we've been lucky as far as Covid goes with the government going in hard and fast with the lockdown, I'm not sure I agree with everything they've done to date, but we seem to have been spared a lot of sick peope and high numbers of deaths this far..
