Covicrat Civil War Means Time For A Reset


“Thanks to Labour’s bungling bureaucracy, hardworking
New Zealanders are locked down with their livelihoods
threatened, and the Prime Minister still isn’t telling the
truth. It is time for a reset. We need a purpose built,
Taiwan-style, Epidemic Response Unit. It should draw on the
best public and private sector advice,” says ACT Leader
David Seymour

“With the Ministry of Health and
Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet waging war through
the media, it is time for a reset. The Government should
follow ACT and the Simpson-Roche report’s advice and
install a purpose built, Taiwan style, Epidemic Response
Unit.

“The Department of Prime Minister and
Cabinet-run Unite Against COVID-19 Facebook page
contradicted the Prime Minister, saying Case L was not
required to isolate. The DPMC is claiming it got advice from
the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Health is denying
it gave the advice.

“The two sides appear to be in a
briefing war, where each side is quietly giving its version
of events to journalists hoping to discredit the other. It
sounds as though the relationship between the Ministry of
Health and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet has
collapsed.

“The Simpson Roche Report said the All of
Government group should be formed into a new directorate
‘mandated to work across government agencies to ensure the
overall forward plan is brought together cohesively and in a
way which allows for rapid and seamless
deployment.’

“ACT’s policy, released in August
said: ACT would establish a specialist multi-displinary
epidemic response unit similar to Taiwan’s Central
Epidemic Command Centre.”

“Such an integrated
approach would improve the consistency of rulemaking, and
the uptake of technology. With a better organised response,
hardworking New Zealanders mightn’t be giving up so much
right now for Labour’s bungling and warring
bureaucracy.
