Covid-19: Kiwis in India despondent about escape prospects as cricketers get charter flight

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 7 May 2021

Kiwis in India are feeling hopeless about their chances to escape pandemic-ravaged India, as they watch New Zealand's cricketers jump on a private jet out of the country this morning.

The Indian cricket association is paying for chartered flights for Indian Premier League players to their homes, including two jets coming to Aotearoa.

That's cold comfort for other New Zealanders, who can't leave despite their best efforts.
