Blocking Indian Kiwis is an interesting and controversial move.1 good thing is they're stopping flights from India from the 11th for a few weeks. I've been wondering why they didn't heavily restrict it for the last month or so when i was seeing multiple cases daily in miq all from flights coming from there. Don't know why it had to take a border worker to get infected before they implemented it.
Once the cases started getting out of control again over there they should've only let special circumstances back with some kind of approval system and that's including the NZ citizens. Off course a few people would've been able to game the system but it would've severely limited the people coming over unnecessarily.
Should be the same for any hot spots. You decide to leave NZ during a pandemic you go at your own risk.
Also on a side note is there any chance the miq worker refused a vaccine? Would he still be allowed to work at border facilities according to guidelines? I don't think i saw anything mentioning the rules about that
Are we blocking Kiwis from the US or the UK?
I know the stats on positive cases goes heavily against India, but I look at this move carefully....provided they are investigating how to solve the problem at the Indian end then I am ok with it.
But a blanket ban on Indian NZs will end up just being racist. Because it is not like we did anything about all the Covid flooded Western countries when we had a chance to.
