In A complete flip flop WHO has stated lockdowns dont work. This from Dr David Nabarro, one of WHOs leading doctors. Encouraging governments to not use them as a primary measure to fight the covid virus.. Lockdowns cause poverty,and resurgence of the virus when lifted as has been witnessed world wide. 
Who would have thought. Guess we can now expect to see lots of poverty.

I think lock downs do what they try to do but in retrospect - hindsight is a wonderful thing - there may be better treatments for the virus.

Who have since revised that statement,Lockdowns work but need to managed to avoid poverty.
Otherwords no body has a bloody clue how to deal with covid.

Issue refers primary to countries with poverty (as we cant imagine on scale or hardship) like India,  many African, Sth American countries.
 Where to isolate closes down all water/ food/ health (if any) supplies, markets with already malnourished  population resulting in more suffering  and deaths , hardship than the virus its self.
Also resulting in these poor populations unable to recover even back to previous sub stand conditions.

But we will see the conspirators jumping on the band wagon, build support from populations that are supposedly poverty and not even close to that of  most countries around the world.

That's true. The lack of forward planning from DHB level right the way up to government and on to the WHO has been an eye-opener for me. Having said that, I think everyone has had the best intentions. The authorities have got it wrong on occasion, they have backtracked on advice and the experts have disagreed. Some people just can't seem to cope with that and it provides a fertile ground for conspiracy theory.

Yep
End of the day..
 NZ we are carrying on pretty much as normal..
Couple industries employees (eg tourism) will have to re think their careers/ jobs 
Which happens every decade or so for many reasons anyway.
And people are not getting sick... even to say dramatically less sick, with flus, colds.
Less ppl dieing because of it, in the low 100s per yr.
 No ppl getting or dieing from covid except immigrants in isolation.

And the rest of the world, bulldozing  mass holes for graves, hospitals over flowing .. normal illness suffering, untreated , dieing.
 lockdowns , more lock downs , protests, civil unrest, and generally worried and stressed.

And we take this all for granted with little concept of the rest of the real world.
And a small fraction .. which is far to big.. is carring on about civil rights, conspiracies, and general BS oblivious to what is actually happening in the rest of the world.

We had a few hic ups, mainly due to some middle 'management and front line being rather blassay at the start, and some in the community being complacent....

 We are here now and there is no way we should let, for whatever reason, NZ to fall and go thru what the rest of the world is going thru...

The penalties for breaking isolation, spreading BS to the gullible,  should be far greater and sever..
They are not risking , as in say a murder, 1 or 2 ppl.. the are risking the deaths of 1000s, the illness of far more, huge crippling of health systems,  the economics to support those systems, and total economic disaster which hurts the blue collar and below, far harder.
Creating dire poverty in the future which NZ has not seen for several generations.
 
 Such actions,the end effect, the are very similar to war crimes on large scale, and genocide rolled into one...
