    Funny the lady cop genuflected at a Diwali festival. That was a moment, eh! But NZ folks are a bit higher on the moral totem pole than other places so kudos to those cops.

    Do folks in NZ have a higher moral pole than the rest of the world?

    Yes dummy, but do you think it is the highest totem pole in the world? If so you're sadly mistaken!!! 😛 😉

    I believe the OP was talking about Moral standards, which you are probably lacking knowledge of! 😉

    I would say that is debatable!

    Again, and according to the article (which is enlightening and which I highly recommend a read), Prime Minister Ardern emphasizes that winning the battle does not mean eradication. In fact, the article acknowledges that they expect another “wave”.

    What she is saying is that they have been able to get and keep the numbers down and that healthcare professionals now have the infrastructure they need to confidently meet the next wave when it will surely come.

    I wish the US were as ready. I fear our waves will overlap me, crescendo, and we will be no more prepared than we were at the first.

    Perhaps the U.S. would have been more ready with someone in charge listening to the Medical Professionals instead of passing it off as the yearly flu!
