Coronavirus: PPE supplies differ by DHB - Green Cross Health

From Morning Report, 6:39 am on 14 April 2020

A major healthcare provider is struggling to get personal protection equipment for their staff, with the ability to get the equipment differing from one District Health Board to another.

Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said a fortnight ago masks were being distributed to DHBs to give to frontline healthcare workers.

He said those workers should be able to feel safe. But Rachael Newfield from Green Cross Health told RNZ political reporter Jo Moir that's not been their experience.
