Covid-19: Public health expert not happy with Alert Level 1

From Morning Report, 7:13 am on 22 September 2020

A public health expert is concerned New Zealand has relaxed restrictions back to Alert Level 1 for most of the country.

Auckland remains at Level 2, but the remainder of the country returns to the new normal - which includes ditching the masks on public transport.

Public Health Professor Nick Wilson says this is a mistake, and a intermediate step to "Alert Level 1.5" would have been safer.

He speaks to Susie Ferguson.
