Covid-19 level 4 lockdown: How has it been for Manurewa?

From Checkpoint, 5:51 pm on 24 April 2020

Friday marks New Zealand's final Friday in level 4 lockdown.

With all things going to plan, this will hopefully be the last time we are under these restrictions.

The lockdown has been like nothing most of us have ever experienced - and while there have been huge challenges, many are relishing the time spent with whānau, or the slower pace of life.

For others it has brought hardship and stress - with a tough slog ahead.

Checkpoint reporter Nita Blake-Persen and Nick Monro headed out to the Auckland suburb of Manurewa for a quick straw poll of how people have found the past four weeks.
