101个社区病例; 住院61人,ICU 4人

随着内阁准备宣布该国将采用何种颜色来迎接新年,今天社区新增 101 例 Covid-19 病例。

做出这一决定之际,最近几天 Covid-19 病例数已从 200 多个病例的高峰下降到 100 多个病例低点附近徘徊。

今天是内阁在 1 月 17 日之前更改交通灯设置的最后机会。

奥克兰所有的 DHB 现在都达到了 90% 的双重疫苗接种率。

总理今天早上告诉 RNZ,过渡到红绿灯系统还为时过早,他们希望确保看到宽松政策的全部影响。

“我们只在这些环境中待了大约 10 天。”

内阁今天开会时,将收到公共卫生团队的额外信息,并考虑所有意见。 然后将在下午 4 点宣布决定。


“我们将采取一种对我们有利的方法。我们要注意的一件事是,如果您过早采取行动,就会冒着病例升级的风险,最终会受到更高的限制。我们想走得更远。”

她说,尽管在整个大流行期间病例数都会有一些“反复”。

周三奥克兰取消边界时,Ardern 鼓励计划在圣诞节期间离开该地区的人们继续采取安全预防措施。

然而,流行病学家罗德·杰克逊认为现在做出任何改变还为时过早,因为自“自由星期五”以来的 10 天还不够长。

“如果我们进一步放宽限制,病例数最终将在年底前再次上升。”

澳大利亚很好地表明了当限制放松时发生的情况,新南威尔士州的病例数已经再次上升,而维多利亚州的病例数不再下降。

他告诉 RNZ,酒吧是唯一人们走来走去的地方,因为大多数餐馆似乎都做得不错。

Te Pūnaha Matatini Covid-19 建模师 Michael Plank 教授表示,Omicron 的变体可能会迅速传播,因此相信可能有“明确的理由”将边界推迟至从 1 月中旬重新开放,并使 MIQ 保持更长时间。这将为新西兰人提供时间进行加强接种,因为英国的数据显示,接种两剂的人,加强剂的保护水平比仅接种两剂的人高得多。

他告诉 RNZ,即使由于可能出现大量病例,大多数病例都是轻微的,但仍可能使大量人住院。

“它可以如此迅速地传播并更容易感染接种过疫苗的人这一事实意味着它肯定会引起问题。”

Ardern 和专家都希望在接下来的几周内了解更多有关 Omicron 严重性的信息。

红绿灯公告将如何影响新年计划

今天下午,新西兰人将了解他们 2021 年新年前夜的计划。
在周一的决定之前——预计在下午 4 点在国会举行的内阁新闻发布会上——政府明确表示,该国任何地方都不会进入“绿色”环境。 这将持续到最早从 1 月 17 日开始的那一周。
这意味着我们将在大流行的第三年进入红色或橙色的环境。

在橙色地区,音乐节、大型演出和夜总会是接种疫苗的人的去处。 而我们这些留在红色的人将坐下并分开,被限制在椅子上,或将计划迁到后院。

101 community cases; 61 people in hospital, 4 in ICU

There are 101 Covid-19 cases in the community as Cabinet prepares to announce what colours the country will be in to welcome the new year.

Cabinet will today consider case numbers, vaccination rates and the length of time the new traffic light system has been in place

The decision comes as the number of Covid-19 case numbers has declined in recent days from its 200-plus peak to hovering around the low 100s figure.

Today is Cabinet’s last chance to change traffic light settings until January 17.

Although throughout the pandemic there would be a bit of “going back and forward”, she said.

When Auckland’s border lifted on Wednesday, Ardern encouraged people planning to travel out of the region for the Christmas period to continue to take safety precautions.

However epidemiologist Rod Jackson felt it was too soon to make any changes because 10 days since Freedom Friday wasn’t long enough.

“If we loosen restrictions more we are going to end up going up again by the end of the year.”

Australia was a good indication of what happened when restrictions loosened and case numbers were already rising again in NSW cases and no longer dropping in Victoria.

Bars were the only ones keen to move as most restaurants seemed to be doing okay, he told RNZ.

Te Pūnaha Matatini Covid-19 modeller Professor Michael Plank said the Omicron variant could spread quite quickly so believed there could be a “clear case” for delaying the border reopening from mid-January and keep MIQ in place for longer.

This would give time for New Zealanders to have their booster shots as UK data showed those with two doses and the booster had a much higher level of protection than those with just two doses.

Even if the majority of cases were mild due to the large number of cases likely, it could still put a significant number of people in hospital, he told RNZ.

“The fact that it can spread so quickly and infect people who have been vaccinated more easily means it is certainly likely to cause problems.”

Both Ardern and the experts expected more information around the severity of Omicron to be known in the next few weeks.

How the traffic light announcement will affect New Year’s Eve plans

This afternoon, New Zealanders will find out what their 2021 New Year’s Eve plans are going to look like.

Prior to Monday’s decisions – expected at a 4pm post-Cabinet press conference in the Beehive – the Government made clear that nowhere in the country would move into the “green” setting yet. That would last until the week beginning January 17 at the very earliest.

That means we’ll be ringing in our third year of life in the pandemic at the red or orange settings.
In regions at orange, music festivals, large-scale gigs and nightclubs are a go for vaccinated people. While those of us left on red will be seated and separated, confined to a chair boogie, or relocating plans to the backyard.
