The Covi-19 modelling that you publicly stated showed there could be tens of thousands of deaths in NZ

Mike Patrick made this Official Information request to Jacinda Ardern

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Mike Patrick to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Mike Patrick

Dear Jacinda Ardern,
In introducing NZ to the "lockdown" and various alert levels in some of your early public statements you referred repeatedly to modelling and other information that showed there was a threat that tens of thousands of new zealanders would die. You used this as the justification for introducing the various changes and restrictions that NZ has and is still dealing with.

I would like to request under the OIA copies of the specific modelling that gave rise to this public statement and any other specific information that you specifically based the "tens of thousands of New Zealanders could die" statement on.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Patrick
