New Zealand locks down after one case of COVID

It’s just my opinion, but I think that the COVID pandemic has exposed the tyrant inside the hearts of many government leaders, such as New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who just ordered a strict three-day national lockdown after one person, one as is ‘1’, allegedly came down with COVID.

Not surprisingly, Ardern is also leader of the country’s Labour Party and at one point was president of the International Union of Socialist Youth, that has more communist leanings, than socialist.

It is a level 4 lockdown that, in New Zealand, requires the closing of all unessential businesses, shutting down schools and offices. It also involves a stay-at-home order that does not allow people to leave their homes and are not even allowed to talk to neighbours.

It seems to be part of the zero COVID mandate that is becoming a faddish trend among certain elements of the political elite. It calls for a complete eradication of COVID, before a country can reopen.

Most epidemiologists believe that we have to learn to live with COVID that, similar to the flu, will always be with us.

While Ardern focuses on eradicating COVID through lockdowns, she has failed miserably at providing vaccines to any New Zealander who wants one. Only 20% of the people in the country have been vaccinated.
