Covid-19: Waitematā DHB outbreak: Doctors' union fears cover-up

From Checkpoint, 5:14 pm on 12 May 2020

A doctors' union fears the Waitematā District Health Board is covering up mistakes that led to seven of its staff contracting Covid-19.

Staff from Waitakere Hospital tested positive for the coronavirus after patients from the St Margaret's Hospital and rest home in Auckland were moved there.

The Resident Doctors Association says the DHB has failed to answer questions about the outbreak and workers at the hospital are increasingly nervous.
