Thanks.

If i understand it correctly, the vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca uses an adenovirus modified with the spikes of coronavirus. 

From the discussion: "They actually stitched in the GP protein, using genetic-engineering techniques, into a benign virus. When this virus infected cells, it made the GP protein, and the body recognized that protein as “foreign” and made antibodies against it."

The world is marvelling at New Zealand's ability to eliminate coronavirus, but eight other countries achieved the same feat earlier.

As long as NZ doesn't open up to international travel, they'll be fine. 

When they let in tourists again.........one asymptomatic visitor could set the whole thing off again. Like the rest of us, they're hoping a vaccine is developed.

The plan is for Australia and NZ to have a trans-tourism "bubble".

But WA and Queensland are holding things up.

while a British epidemiologist explains the cost of not locking the UK down earlier.

Ferguson serves on the committee advising the UK Gov. He's probably right that locking the UK down sooner would have saved thousands of lives. Unfortunately the scientists didn't have the evidence to recommend that happen until a week later. 

I don't see this as a reason to blame anyone. It's just the way it happened.

;-) Every general would be able to win every battle if he had hindsight and his opponent didn't.
