From Morning Report, 8:12 am on 29 December 2020

National has welcomed the introduction of the new pre-departure testing regime - but it also says it doesn't go far enough. Initially, only travellers from the United Kingdom and the United States will be required to take an additional Covid-19 test on arrival. And from mid-January, only British arrivals will have to provide a negative Covid-19 test before they step on the plane. The National Party's Covid-19 response spokesperson Chris Bishop speaks to Morning Report's Perlina Lau.
