Te Tai Tokerau Must Remain Red

Jan. 25, 2022, 1:51 p.m.

Te Tai Tokerau has been the only region in Aotearoa to remain under the Red Light throughout the summer break, but was recently scheduled to join the rest of Aotearoa under the Orange Light  at 11:59pm, Thursday 20 January 2022. However several positive cases in the Nelson region were confirmed to be the more infectious Omicron variant resulting in the Government announcing that all of Aotearoa will move to the Red Light at 11:59pm, Sunday 23 January. Hone Harawira talks to us about his recent media release saying what a dumb idea to downgrade Tai Tokerau from Red to Orange in the Covid traffic light system while Tai Tokerau Māori suffered low vaccination rates, high economic deprivation, chronic illness, obesity, and an overburdened primary care and hospital system. Hone also makes a few points emphasizing the fact that we of Te Tai Tokerau needs to remain in the Red Light at least until we achieve 90 percent vaccination rate.
