Kiwi Covid Case Numbers per Capita now amongst the highest in the whole world
Who would've thought it? Today over 12,000 cases of Covid in NZ? That's around 2,400 per million of our population. And numbers have been doubling the past several days.
The "Our World in Data" source below, which compares Covid cases per million, was last updated several days ago. On today's numbers, it looks like NZ now has one of the highest case load numbers in the world. We're in the top 20 out of over 200 countries. Should numbers double again we could hit the top 10. From Zero Covid to Complete Covid.
The super-promising news is that very few people are in intensive care, in spite of the high numbers, so we may still emerge in good shape (though I know little about medical matters).
