According to reports, New Zealand’s all-encompassing Minister of Health was found to have violated the Corona Virus blockade rule twice and later resigned. He previously called himself an “idiot” because of his poor judgment.
According to the British “Guardian”, David Clark has been demoted after riding a mountain bike and taking his family to the beach about 15 miles from Dunedin’s home.
He apologized for the two incidents and told Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern that he was an “idiot” for the wrong decision.
In response, Arden demoted Clark from the cabinet rankings, but prevented him from resigning, saying he needed his expertise during the public health crisis.
However, according to news media reports, public dissatisfaction with Clark continued to rise within a few weeks after Clark was demoted, despite the country’s leadership under the leadership of Dr Ashley Bloomfield The country’s coronavirus response is generally praised.
Last week, Clark refused to be responsible for multiple failures, including those released from the quarantine without quarantine.
According to a BBC report, he said: “I take full responsibility for the decisions I made while I was Minister of Health.”
Arden accepted Clark’s resignation, calling it “critical to our health leadership and gaining the trust of the New Zealand public.”
She said: “David’s conclusion is that his presence in this position is distracting the government’s continued response to COVID-19 and the broader medical reforms helplessly.”
Education Minister Chris Hipkins will take over from the Ministry of Health until the country’s election in September.
