Let's leave it to the historians to judge whether the Covid-19 lockdown was a complete over-reaction, right now we need to get the forestry industry back to work. It makes no sense for forest regions like East Cape with 3 virus cases, Whanganui with 7 and Wairarapa with 8 to have to continue to suffer a cure that is worse than the original disease. Lets get the forestry industry back working again so that it can play its part in the economic recovery effort which should now be the focus.
