    • Literal Google search proves this bitch wrong. Also basic math proves that NZ isn't accurate in terms of ACTUAL cases and deaths. If we assume that higher positive cases indicates greater testing capacity (which we certainly can do) then the math clearly shows that NZ has tested far less people...
