The people of Auckland have had to endure the most Covid-19 restrictions and longest Alert Levels 4 & 3 lockdowns than any other one area in Aotearoa since the Delta Outbreak in August. Makere Mutu talks to us about her concerns with the Governments recent announcement about the new traffic light system allowing the gates of Auckland to open up on 15 December 2021 for people to travel abroad including to Te Tai Tokerau. Mutu reminds us that although Auckland has reached a 90% vaccination rate, we here in Te Tai Tokerau remain one of the lowest vaccinated rohe in Aotearoa. Many whānau and kaumātua fear the consequences of a potential outbreak of the Delta virus in Te Tai Tokerau and the impacts it will have especially on our Māori people.
