It’s a jolt across New Zealand this week, back to Covid level 2 and 3 restrictions on socialising, schooling, sports and life.
But those Kiwis who’ve had the virus say we can’t be complacent in any way. Six months on from fighting Covid 19 one woman in her 40s is far from being back to full health, and our longest-hospitalised case, a woman who was close to death during 2 months in ICU – is also still recovering.
They’ve been sick, we’re all sick of it, and the economy’s on life support. We ask one of our country’s most senior economists, are we doing the right thing?
