New Zealand: Public Health & Economy

New Zealand: Public Health & Economy
New Zealand Economy Surges Out of Recession In V-Shaped Recovery

Gross domestic product surged by 14 percent in the third quarter, helped by aggressive stimulus measures and consumer spending.

Gross domestic product surged 14% from the second quarter, when it contracted a revised 11%, Statistics New Zealand said Thursday. Economists forecast a 12.9% gain. From a year earlier, the economy grew 0.4%, confounding the consensus forecast for a 1.8% decline.

“We can only identify three other countries that have achieved the ‘full recovery’: Taiwan, China and Ireland,” said Stephen Toplis, head of research at Bank of New Zealand in Wellington. “New Zealand is definitely in a very small minority.”

The government’s determination to eliminate the virus saw it impose one of the strictest lockdowns in the world but allowed a quicker resumption of economic activity once it was stamped out.
New Zealand has recorded 1,744 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and just 25 deaths.

New Zealand detects first community COVID-19 case in two months

A 56-year-old woman who recently returned from Europe tested positive 10 days after completing two weeks in isolation.
The woman returned to New Zealand on December 30 after spending four months in Europe – mainly in Spain and the Netherlands – and was released from an Auckland quarantine hotel on January 13.
New Zealand Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said the woman returned two negative tests while in isolation, and her husband had not shown any symptoms.
This marks the first known case of community transmission in New Zealand since November 18/20.

Re: New Zealand: Public Health & Economy

New Zealand’s new COVID case is the South African variant (501.V2*)
Genome testing indicates woman who got sick caught virus from another returning traveller just before leaving quarantine.

*The South African variant, 501.V2, carries a mutation called E484K, among others.
Scientists have tested the Pfizer Covid vaccine against one of the mutations, found in the South African variant, called N501Y, using blood samples from 20 people. In that preliminary study*, vaccination appeared to work against the mutated virus.
However, the S.A. variant has a number of additional mutations, including changes to some of the virus' spike protein, so further study is required.

* “Neutralization of N501Y mutant SARS-CoV-2 by BNT162b2 vaccine-elicited sera”

Re: New Zealand: Public Health & Economy

I can’t understand how NZs strategy will work long term. They will be potentially faced with closed borders for years.
