The question now is how long it will take before we see numbers going down again. The virus is now spreading within the community in New Zealand. Testing is focused on people who are likely to have contracted COVID, which means there are a lot more people with the infection in the community than the number of cases reported. The disease spreads exponentially and, with limited testing capacity, this difference gets larger each day. Even if somebody within a home develops the illness, the virus will be limited to the group of people there and won’t be able to spread any further.
By isolating individuals and confining communities, a lockdown effectively disrupts the chains of people-to-people transmission the virus needs to sustain itself. If we delay breaking the chain of transmission, the gap between actual and reported cases will get larger. The graph above shows what happened in China in terms of new cases of coronavirus before and after they locked down their cities.
The longer, darker bars show the number of cases at the time of onset of symptoms, and the orange bars represent cases that were found by testing people. The underlying case counts start dropping immediately after lockdown, and then the reported counts follow suit. This means that in New Zealand, we may see the numbers surge before they drop, but based on what we’ve learned from the outbreak in China, we will bring COVID infections down faster the more resolutely the lockdown continues.
This is why we should remain optimistic and patient, and do the best we can to “fast track” the drop in actual cases, which will eventually bring down reported cases as well. Read the original article. Coronavirus: Why New Zealand’s cases will keep rising for weeks, even in a lockdown.

This page also includes New Zealand dates for equinox and solstice events over the next few years. See the bottom of the page for the table. Tables of the daily times of Sun or Moon rise and set, and the times of twilight, civil, nautical or astronomical for any location for a selected year, can be easily generated at the USNO web site. The times of Moon rise and set change much more from day to day than those of sun rise and set. They are best generated for a given locality on a daily basis.
To use the USNO site to generate them you will need your longitude and latitude. Times of twilight can also be generated at the same site. In the North Island, Auckland and Wellington are virtually the same longitude, so for places like Hamilton, Taumarunui, Wanganui and Palmerston North, between them, times can be determined by proportion. Also note that in midsummer, December and January, times of Sun rise for all places on the east coast of New Zealand are almost the same.
The same applies to the time of Sun set in winter, June and July. Near the equinoxes, in March and September, latitude is unimportant, the times of Sun rise and set depend on longitude as explained above. That is, places at the same longitude have similar times of sunrise and sunset, whatever their latitude. In summer for places with the same longitude, sunrise is earlier and sunset later the further south one goes, ie the hours of daylight are longer.
Fri 29 Dec A s the train chugs across the Taieri Plains, female hips clad in sequins press against male thighs in polyester suits. The carriages sway unpredictably, flinging young revellers randomly together in the narrow aisles. The men are drunk, but not yet in full Casanova mode, and the women — giggly, peacocky, beautiful — scamper out of their reach, smiles stirring faintly with attraction.
It is Saturday night on a long weekend and out the windows the custardy sunset is sinking fast, bathing muddy paddocks of unshorn sheep with a romantic golden hue.
