NZ’s Health Minister Accidentally Drops C-Bomb During Media CV-19 Update

When it comes to managing the CV-19 pandemic, apparently our Kiwi cousins are well ahead of the game. Low infection and mortality rates have seen the them become one of the first countries to head out of lockdown.

So it was all eyes on New Zealand’s health minister David Clark who gave a press conference yesterday to update the populace on the nation’s efforts but to also warn of the dangers of a possible “second wave of infection”.

However, it was Clark’s mangled speech the soon caught social media’s attention when he appeared to accidentally drop the C-bomb.

Clark said: “Around the world, we have seen the virus spread at funerals, as well as a second wave of infection taking hold just as c*nts were getting on top of the virus, like we are now.”

Check it out for yourself below:

Twitter was quick to jump on Clarks’ gaffe, and it appeared it was all unintentional. According to multiple Twitter users, Clark’s C-bomb was just an “Respiratory diseases” that only happened on one feed. Apparently, on every other live stream did actually say “countries”.

And it’s not Clark’s first faux pas during lockdown. He was severely reprimanded and demoted by PM Jacinda Ardern after he was busted on a bike ride and driving 20 kilometres to a beach despite strict government rules that he, himself, had enforced.
