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.
