Billy Te Kahika went on a bandwagon of fear over a COVID-19 case by encouraging his followers to go panic shopping ‘calmly' right after the Community Case was announced. This does more harm than any good.
A Community Case was identified in Northland as a 56-year-old woman.
The woman used Bluetooth tracking and QR scanning which allowed fast action to isolate close contacts.
Mr Kahika claimed a lockdown was expected on January 15. It did not happen. Now he claims one is still ‘planned' over the new case.
The Government reminded people on January 25 that ‘fake news' social media posts are causing unneeded fear for families. A reminder that the Government has no intentions to put businesses under lockdown unless the virus spreads.
If the virus spreads, Supermarkets remain open to the public. There is no need to panic buy.
Currently, the virus is under control and there is no need for a lockdown to occur.
