Take it you ain't worked with many islanders or that.
They usually fooked when they get a cold. 20 year olds limping round with gout. plus they have alot under laying health conditions
I've no experience of the situation within NZ, but I know over here in Australia there are major concerns with the indigenous population. There is always a warning flag with their healthcare because of a known lack of resistance to "western" diseases, and it is just as you say, due to lack of exposure to such germs and viruses. This was a major fact in the deaths of thousands of native inhabitants back in the early days of settlement - they caught various diseases from the early settlers and having no resistance, passed away very fast.
Now in dealing with COVID extra precautions have been enacted in many places to try and keep native settlements protected. Indigenous Australians are acknowledged as a major "high risk" group, and even those with only partial indigenous heritage are advised to take extra precautions, stay home more, work from home more etc. One of my closest colleagues is 1/4 Aboriginal, and his doctor has advised him from Day One to stay home as much as possible, be careful where he goes and who he mixes with, and would love him to work from home, but the stubborn git refuses - he says he needs to come to work to get away from the wife!!

Indeed, I'd have to agree

Many factors of course, but there's heaps of studies internationally on the link between life expectancy and socio economic status.

At the other end of the socio economic spectrum - this made me laugh out loud Shock COVID-19 News

Residents of the upmarket Auckland suburb of Devonport are coming to terms with the news that the first identified New Zealand case of the Covid-19 Delta variant in the community, a local resident, is a tradesman.The shock revelation was made on Wednesday by TVNZ, which ran the headline “BREAKING: Devonport Man Works As A Tradesman”

Experts say the man has done nothing wrong and is to be commended for diligently scanning QR codes and swiftly obtaining a Covid test when symptoms became apparent. But Devonport residents are still shocked that a tradesman is in the community.
Quotable Value has reported no immediate effect on local house prices.

I'm enjoying the fact that the vaccine ethnicity rollout only includes Māori, Pacifica, Asian and...Other.

Some might be offended by the rediculous broad aggregation but I'm very proud of my ancestral heritage as an Other and I think you should be to. From now on whenever I fill in a form that asks about ethnicity I won't tick European or British/Irish (that long struggle for Irish independence and they end up in the same category!) but write "Other" instead. Next new public holiday created I think we're in guys.

I like being an 'Other' but be warned there is additional admin in that; there's usually another dropdown box requiring you to state from where.

Sorry to hear that.
I'm hating being here feeling trapped. Having a lonely, sad, inertia kind of day. Hoping nothing happens to stop my trip to the UK on the 18th. If it wasn't for my OH I wouldn't return.
