Coronavirus: Ashley Bloomfield confident NZ can handle larger gatherings

From Morning Report, 7:34 am on 26 May 2020

News that gatherings can be attended by up to 100 people from this Friday has been welcomed throughout the country.

From wedding planners to funeral directors, there's been a big sigh of relief that the government now believes it is safe for larger numbers of people to be together at the same time.

There's hope that even fewer restrictions are not far away with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern saying the limits will be looked at again in a fortnight and moving to Alert Level 1 will be considered on June 22nd.

Director General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield speaks to Corin Dann.
