The rise in new COVID-19 cases in Aotearoa is primarily attributed to more people returning to Aotearoa, testing of people at the borders, and an increase in cases overseas. The best strategy for Aotearoa is to lower risk as much as possible by implementing measures such as 14 day isolation for arrivals at the border, testing people in isolation or quarantine twice, and quarentining those who have COVID19. Prof Shaun Hendy advises us to be cautious, protect our whānau, and don't be afraid. Kia kaha e te iwi.
