By Definition On April 23 New Zealand Should Be At Level 1 Alert

The Coronavirus Coalition has employed a workforce of Comms experts producing all manner of material online that we all know they have made up as they go along. The problem with the colouring-in departments who produce such pretty works of art, is that they never suspect people may actually drill down and read the coloured chart in and start asking difficult questions. The main resource is a website covid19.govt.nz.  Lord know how much cash has been burned producing something that civil servants should have been able to put together but some consultancy and marketing advisories friendly to the Coronavirus Coalition will be creaming it. On the website there are alert level definitions.  I am just putting it out there that based on this material as read, there is absolutely no reason why on April 23rd New Zealand should be at a level 3 or even a level 2.

Astute persons may have picked up this "news" story online currently. It is direct from the Coalition government  media enablers Radio New Zealand and screams clickbait. Really?   Research New Zealand has been taking the pulse of the nation since the lockdown began. Tell me this is not a false flag operation.  Please. Who is paying them to do this?  Or are they conducting a totally non-essential service at a time they should not be?  What was the sample size?  And from what region? At what time of the day? Kalafatelis said people were asked if they would be willing to remain in lockdown for at least another two weeks beyond 22 April when it is due to finish. Sixty percent agreed they would, 14 percent disagreed, and 26 percent didn't know. He said 60 percent showed a high level of support. 26 percent did not know?  You have been sitting on your collective asses now for two weeks or working as an "essential worker" slaving your guts out and
