A dementia care facility in Christchurch has been identified as one of 12 key clusters of Covid-19 cases, and it has prompted a scramble for experienced aged care staff.

Sixteen residents and staff from Rosewood Rest Home and Hospital in Linwood have either tested positive for the virus, or been identified as probable cases.
