Our computer modelling team are worried. Funny that, a computer modeller worried about something. Does that remind you of anything climate like?
Hendy’s first claim to fame, was when he computer modelled his way to predicting 88,000 kiwis to perish from COVID-19.
The recent receiver of the Prime Ministers Science Award is now suggesting we should shut down supermarkets.
I guess he may now want to model how many people will starve to death, how many will riot in the streets and how long toilet paper supply will last, with those kinds of suggestions.
I can hear the pitter patter of tiny minds feet racing to the toilet roll isles as we speak. I cant wait for more suggestions to the public from New Zealand’s decorated theoretical Physicist.
Perhaps he should model the likelihood of catching the virus if we all held our breath for two weeks.
Or will he finally contribute something worthy of a PM science award. Don’t hold your breath!
