Covid-19: Could be weeks before cluster stops spreading - Jacinda Ardern

From Morning Report, 7:21 am on 25 August 2020

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says it could be weeks before the Auckland cluster stops spreading. 

She told Morning Report looking at the country's previous experience working with clusters, where some took 12 to 13 weeks to stop spreading, the Auckland cluster that was discovered earlier in August could be around a while.

"I do expect it will take us some time for us to see the end of this cluster," she said.
