A recent survey shows New Zealanders are more concerned about the financial losses from Covid-19 than they are about the impact to their health.

The parent company to research firm Colmar Brunton, Kantar found that less than one in four New Zealanders are worried about becoming sick, while a third are worried about how a pandemic might lead to an economic recession.

Karyn Hay speaks with Kantar's CEO Jason Shoebridge about the New Zealand public's outlook.
