Since the first outbreak of Covid-19, studies have shown Māori as the most vulnerable ethnicity in Aotearoa. More recent research shows Māori and Pacific people who contract the deadly virus are also at the greatest risk of needing hospitalisation. Dr Rawiri Taonui provides an update confirming this research and says Māori now have the highest positive cases throughout Aotearoa for 34 days in a row. Dr Taonui also says that it is really important for Māori communities, hapū and whānau to put together their own plans for how they mite survive if left alone for a period of time.
