IF we are SMS, I think it will be a vastly modified CB.

Too soon!

July 3rd would be 14th day, so majority of cases should be coming up then.

Gonna do some shopping to prepare for CB2....

Point taken BBCDoc, but we agree on the preliminary prognosis! lol

Any kiwis here?

See the big muff up in NZ? Unbelievable lack of control in the latest imported cases...

Important lessons for every country to learn. Am sure heads will roll, and some people are going into 14-SHN...

Yes a big cock up and now they have 320 contacts to trace.

That will further delay borders opening.

Yep, pretty bad stuff up. PM did not sound happy at all. I reckon some heads better roll.

In a way, NZ may have painted themselves into a corner by eradicating the virus - if they intend to keep it at zero, they'll need to truly seal their borders right until a vaccine is found & delivered, which could take years. Even opening up to Australia seems risky.

No NZ tourism or visitors until 2022?

True Biggin. Big conundrum. Some of their island neighbours are at Zero though.

Australia will struggle to get to a true zero but maybe by 2021.

Another imported case today in NZ, but this one they caught in quarantine. He had traveled from Lahore.

As it currently stands only returning NZers are allowed into the country, with some notable exceptions, like film crews.
