    A Tale of Two Countries

    New Zealand

    In mid February 3 people from the same family in Auckland developed Covid, probably from transmission at the airport. A small community outbreak followed. (One hopes it remains small; there has been no recent community transmission).

    Just days later the government of New Zealand set up the independent continuous review group having appreciated advice from previous groups earlier in the pandemic. The 5 person group will meet twice each month through till June 2022.

Implementation of those recommendations has left us better protected and better prepared."
