Hopefully this isn't news to anyone here, since I've been saying as much for six weeks now, ever since the US Government COVID-19 Response Plan was leaked:

Trump has already blown up these experts. Trump's followers already think all scientists are part of some Satanic cult for their magic tricks with chemicals and electricity.

New Zealand has covid contained.
It is possible if people stop spreading it.

But the US is full of entitled selfish short sighted idiots.
Welcome to hell.

Now New Zealand just has to keep their border closed for 18 months and they will win the war. Maybe.
