Covid-19: Siouxsie Wiles on border management

From Morning Report, 8:24 am on 16 July 2020

Experts and government officials are warning that New Zealanders need to stop being so complacent and accept there could be another outbreak of Covid-19.

They say the risk of community transmission grows every day as more New Zealanders return from places where the virus is increasing exponentially.

The Prime Minister yesterday laid out the government's plan should infection slip through the border.

Dr Siouxsie Wiles is an infectious diseases specialist from Auckland University.

She speaks to Philippa Tolley.
