Some Graphs for the 1pm Health Ministry Covid Update?

The Johns Hopkins data on daily new cases and deaths from Covid are striking. Lets compare NZ with the World, since obviously comparing us with any particular country can lead to one trying to bias the "narrative".


The graphs below show that over ten times more people per million are catching Covid in NZ right now than in the rest of the world (960 per million in NZ compared with 70 per million in the rest of the world).


Meanwhile Kiwis are dying of Covid at a rate ten times higher compared to the rest of the world (2 per million in NZ compared with 0.17 per million in the rest of the world).
