A new NZ epidemic
We’re seeing a lot of drownings in NZ this summer. A lot. Two in the last week at Glenorchy which is an hour up the lake from Queenstown. Normally the total drownings in Glenorchy are zero. Both men were trying to save children who had got into trouble near where the Rees river runs into Lake Wakatipu. One man was trying to save his own child and the other was being a good samaritan who drowned while his fiance watched from the beach. His family flew in from Australia to support her. Horrific for her and she would not have had their support for at least 24 hours I’d suspect.
2022 was one of the worst years on record for drownings in NZ with about 100 having drowned (officially I believe it is 91). But in 2023 and only 2/3s of the way through the first month we are already at over 20 drowning deaths. This weekend alone seems to be news after news of drownings. Without adding them up I’d say that they were around 8/9 or so.
One might suspect the Jab as responsible? If you get into a rip and your system is compromised then you’d surely be correct to assume that the risk of drowning was higher.
