Because it works.
Because it was clear, from my extensive reading, listening to proven expertise, that New Zealand looked at what had happened in China and the East Asian States, and took that lived experience, clinical experience and social experience and they learned from the errors the Chinese made, in Wuhan during the first month, and they learned from the successes of the Chinese. Humility and kindness.
The USUK on the other hand did not do that.
The results thus far are more than clear, unfortunately for all those harmed by the disease itself, and for all those whose work and incomes have been undermined, and for the failures of bad policy that cannot be undone, yet which deserve redress. Hubris and arrogance.

What is the Zero Covid Strategy?
I have been writing about ZCT since the start.
It IS the correct approach. We must start as soon as possible. It can be done.
