Covid-19: Mobile clinics hope to drive up Māori testing rates

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 17 July 2020

Mobile clinics have helped drive high Covid-19 testing rates for Māori, and Māori health providers want them to become a regular part of primary health care practice. 

As well as testing for the virus, the clinics have been doing check-ups and flu vaccinations. 

The response means Māori Covid-19 testing rates are now well above the national average.
