Watch Covid Update Sunday 28th February

Genome sequencing so far suggests all the latest community cases of Covid-19 are linked, which indicates a single source of infection, Dr Ashley Bloomfield says.

Auckland moved into alert level 3 for seven days from 6am today, with the rest of the country going to alert level 2.

Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins confirmed today that genomic sequencing linked the latest community cases of Covid-19 in Auckland to the second family in the South Auckland cluster.

The cases have resulted in Auckland going to alert level three for seven days, and the rest of the country to level two.

Speaking to media this afternoon, Dr Bloomfield said the genome sequencing showed cases “M” and “N” were not casually connected – this was a direct link which narrowed down the chain of transmission.

Dr Bloomfield said Auckland Public Health officials were still trying to track down a single source of infection that has led to the community cases.

He said wastewater testing has not been able to find wider community cases of Covid-19.

 

Councillor Abbott Compares Media Training to Preschool

All but two Invercargill City councillors are happy with new media protocols stopping them speaking out when certain decisions are made at meetings.

Councillors voted in favour to the media protocols at Tuesday’s council meeting, except deputy Mayor Nobby Clark and Cr Lindsay Abbott – who were both against the policy. Mayor Sir Tim Shadbolt was also vocal about the protocols, voting against them.

Cr Abbott said he felt “sanitised” by the protocols and compared it to being in preschool.

The introduction of media protocols has come from an independent review into the council’s governance ability.

The protocols asked councillors to agree to focus on council issues and activities when speaking to the media, rather than actions or decisions of other elected members or staff.

Cr Abbott said he would continue to speak to the media about decisions by elected members on certain policies and issues, “but not as a character assassination.”

The report was authorised by chief executive Clare Hadley and prepared by Pete Thomson and Jane Parfitt – staff members.

Cr Clark questioned the need for a media policy saying that inappropriate comments made by councillors were already covered under the code of conduct.

He told the meeting that this was just another “gagging” order and asked that his vote against be recorded.

“…me agreeing to that means I am silenced in criticising any collective decision.  

Cr Darren Ludlow said the way he understood it was if people wanted to execute the right to speak publicly against a council decision, they can speak in opposition, “but you can’t rubbish it, you can hold a contrary view, but not ridicule the decision or the members who made it.”

Day 4 Wrap Cycling National Championships (watch)

New Zealand endurance rider Kirstie James underlined her class with a dominant display on the final night of the Vantage Elite and Under 19 Track National Championships at Invercargill.

The Southland rider, who had finished third in the elite women’s individual pursuit earlier in the week, rode in the second team sprint side, anchored the southerners to a team pursuit gold and then produced a standout display to take out the 20km points race in a finale to the four-day championship at the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome.

James, who took two laps on the field during the 20km, 80-lap race, received fantastic support from her Southland teammates, Nicole Shields and Rylee McMullan who also took a lap and banked the silver medal, with Holly Edmondston (Mid-South Canterbury) third.

“It’s been an excellent day. I wasn’t sure how my legs would pull up after doing the team pursuit and team sprint, but to be honest my legs were so tired that I had to make smart decisions and that really worked in my favour today,” she said.

“Massive thanks to Cycling Southland and the girls, they did so much for me, I really appreciated it. I also want to say that it was really sad not to have some of my teammates who are recovering from crashes and some of the girls who crashed today. I hope I did them proud.”

The elite men’s 30km points race final showcased Southland’s Corbin Strong in the rainbow jersey as the reigning world points race champion amongst a quality field.

Strong claimed the first two sprints before Aaron Gate began to take control of the race, with reigning Commonwealth Games points race champion Mark Stewart – the Scotsman riding for Southland – also prominent.

Regan Gough and Campbell Stewart did their best to break-up the race, but it was Gate who added the title to his individual pursuit crown from Friday, Stewart taking silver and Strong bronze.

“I didn’t think I was going to have the speed in the sprints to match Corbin and Campbell based on what happened last year, so I put on a bigger gear to try and get a lap on everyone and it went the other way. I won a couple of the early sprints and got enough of a buffer to be able to chip away at it right until the end.”

Southland claimed both the women’s and men’s elite and under-19 4000m team pursuit titles, the women’s team with an impressive line-up including New Zealand representatives James and Shields, McMullan and junior world championship rider Emily Patterson.

“The first time we’d ridden as a team was this morning in the warm up, but we came together and produced a really nice team pursuit ride,” James said.

The young Canterbury Black team won silver, backing up after breaking the championship under 19 record with Charlotte Spurway, Jenna Borthwick, Mikaela Grant and Amelia Sykes in the morning, while Auckland took bronze.

The Southland men’s team of New Zealand riders Strong, Tom Sexton and Nick Kergozou, along with Hamish Keast, had their eye on breaking their own championship record in the final, but had to settle for the gold medal after a messy catch against Canterbury, with Waikato-Bay of Plenty taking bronze.

The Southland Red team of Emma Cumming, Nicole Marshall and Emily Paterson took out the elite women’s team sprint from Waikato-Bay of Plenty Gold (Olivia King, Ellesse Andrews, Mya Anderson), with a composite team of Rhiannon Dunn, Shaane Fulton and Olivia Ray third.

Waikato’s Jackson Ogle, Jayden Fleming and Patrick Clancy combined well to take out the elite men’s team sprint from the Canterbury trio of Sebastian Lipp, Josh Scott and Dylan Day. A great ride by Wellington (Chris Watts, Russell Pepperell, Mike Thomas) earned them the bronze medal.

The Waikato-Bay of Plenty Gold combination of Sophie de Vries, Lily Cawood and Prudence Fowler were too strong for Canterbury Black (Borthwick, Sykes and Grant) in the gold medal ride for the under 19 women’s team sprint. Southland’s Alana Breen, Ciara Kelly and Rhylee Akeroyd won bronze.

Waikato-Bay of Plenty’s Ewan Cousins, Kyle Aitken and Liam Cavanagh won the under 19 men’s team sprint from the Canterbury trio of Ryan McLeod, Michiel van Heyningen and Michael Audeau. Waikato-Bay of Plenty Black (Jaxson Russell, Jared Mann, Hamish Coltman) were third.

Canterbury’s Jenna Borthwick, who also won the scratch and keirin this week, added the under 19 women’s elimination race with a strong final lap, with Southland’s Rhylee Akeroyd second and Cantabrian Amelia Sykes taking bronze.

Tasman’s Kaio Lart took out the under-19 men’s elimination race after Waikato-Bay of Plenty’s Zakk Patterson was relegated to second after the race, with Ronan Shearing (Southland) third.

The Vantage Elite track squad will now have a two-week break before setting their sights on the final campaign through to the Tokyo Olympics.

Fonterra Narrows 2021 Earnings Guidance

Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited today announced it has lifted the bottom end of its 2021 forecast earnings guidance and narrowed the range to 25-35 cents per share, from 20-35 cents per share.

Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell says, while it is still in the process of preparing its interim accounts for release on 17 March, it now has enough information to provide more clarity on its full-year earnings guidance.

“That is why we have come out today with narrower forecast earnings range of 25-35 cents per share, which still reflects the usual uncertainties we face over the course of any given year.

“Despite the challenges and flow on effects of COVID-19, the team have remained committed and disciplined. There has been strong demand for the Co-op’s New Zealand milk and we’ve continued to get product to market.”

Fonterra is expecting its earnings performance to be heavily weighted to the first half of the financial year.

Hurrell says a forecast Farmgate Milk Price range of $6.90-$7.50 per kgMS is great for farmers and the New Zealand economy, but dairy prices increasing through the first half of the year does put pressure on our sales margins and this will be seen through the second half of the year.

“We will continue to focus on what is within our control – that’s staying on strategy and maintaining financial discipline. It’s also about our teams going out every day in our markets around the world, proactively managing challenges in the global supply chain and delivering for our customers, farmer shareholders and unit holders.”

SIT Music Students Perform at Burt Munro

This year’s attendees at the Burt Munro Challenge were entertained by an array of rising musical talent, treated to performances from bands made up of Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) Music students. The annual event provided a perfect platform for students, who seized the opportunity to increase their live performing experience and to play to a different audience.

SIT School of Music Programme Manager, Dr Jeff Wragg said there were three bands involved, comprised of a dozen students who performed at the rally site, Oreti Park, Otatara, on the evening of Thursday 11th February, entertaining hundreds of rally participants.

He said two of the bands perform regularly at clubs, weddings and other events, while the third band was made up of third-year students and Dr Wragg, and was put together solely for the Burt Munro event. The students played a variety of classic hits, from the 60’s to present day.

Music student Corrina James, is a band member and SIT School of Music Student Rep, she said the students all really enjoyed their participation in the event. “It was a great opportunity for us to get out there and gain some more experience, and also just to put our names out there”.

Dr Wragg said the bands performing at Burt Munro was purely for students to get more live playing experience outside of SIT, as well as providing the School of Music another opportunity to engage with the local community.

“This is the first time the SIT School of Music has been involved with the event, and also the first time live music was provided on the first night of the rally”.

“The audience was extremely receptive and the students created a real party atmosphere. One of the patrons even spoke to one of the bands about performing for another event in the North Island later in the year”.

“We hope it will become an annual event for us” said Dr Wragg.

Karen Witham, Conference and Events Manager at Great South also had positive remarks about the students’ inaugural involvement.

“What a night! I was really impressed with the students’ performances, engagement and energy! Our rally-goers got into the swing by filling the dance floor. Bring on Burt 2022, I can’t wait to see a repeat of the entertainment; it’s an awesome opportunity to showcase the developing talent we have in the South, with our visitors to the region”.
