Covid-19: Aucklanders wait to see if lockdown will end

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 14 August 2020

It's an anxious wait for Aucklanders today who fear the government will extend the lockdown beyond midnight tonight.

Businesses across the city have been under stress as they've been forced back to Level Three restrictions since Wednesday at midday.

GPs have also been struggling to meet the soaring demand for Covid-19 tests, as their patients have been turned away from busy community testing stations.

Dr John Cameron, a GP in Westmere, Roz Cattell, a café owner and general manager of a coffee roaster, and Viv Beck, chief executive of Heart of the City, Auckland's business association, speak to Kim Hill.
