Big demand for testing centres in Coromandel

From Nine To Noon, 10:32 am on 18 August 2021

Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki,  is a rural, Iwi-based, not-for-profit health provider in the Hauraki rohe, and it's set up a number of swabbing centres across the Coromandel this morning.

The centre in Coromandel Town opened at 9am - and had about one hundred cars lined up at the Thames-Coromandel District carpark just after it opened.

Riana Manuel is chief executive of Te Korowai, and joins Susie from the swabbing front line.
