From First Up, 5:46 am on 26 October 2021

This comes after Auckland recorded its highest daily case numbers of 126 on Friday last week, while there were 109 cases in the country yesterday with 103 of them in Auckland. And as our reporter Ella Stewart found out, despite more than two months in level 3 or 4 lockdown, not everyone is looking forward to going back.
