Manukau Councillor Efeso Collins on Mt Roskill Covid-19 cases

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:19 pm on 9 September 2020

The Ministry of Health is asking all people connected with the Mt Roskill Evangelical Fellowship to be re-tested, even if they have no symptoms.

Fourteen of the Mt Roskill cases are linked to what the Ministry is describing as a bereavement event, including a funeral where 48 people attended and visited the home of the bereaved.

One of the cases is a student at St Dominic's Catholic College in Auckland. 

Jesse speaks to Manukau Councillor Efeso Collins about the latest developments.
