12 days ago I published some 2020 NZ death statistics, specifically,

Road toll this year – 218 deaths

Coronavirus this year – 25 deaths

Here’s an update

Road toll since then – 14 deaths

Coronavirus since then – Nil deaths

Given the virus lockdown success illustrated by these comparisons, it’s utterly unacceptable that Ashley hasn’t called for a ban on cars.


Don’t go here Sir Robert-there are all kinds of rules attached to driving, including getting a license etc. All you are doing is encouraging the government to implement more rules around breathing/meeting & being alive…

Right on cue the Greens just have proposed a ban on cars.

My major take away from these facts is that , thankfully , death by car is not contagious.
