Damp PPE likely cause of Covid-19 for health workers

From Midday Report, 12:14 pm on 22 April 2020

Canterbury District Health Board says damp, unchanged PPE is likely reason three of its healthcare workers contracted Covid-19.

The staff tested positive for the virus last week, after caring for patients from Rosewood Rest Home and Hospital, and helping move some of them to Burwood Hospital.

Christchurch reporter Katie Todd speaks to Māni Dunlop about the findings.
