Team of five million need to be committed to prevent outbreak

From Sunday Morning, 7:10 am on 16 August 2020

The latest results from the now-fortnightly poll conducted by Research New Zealand shows that respondents believe the 'team of five million' needs to be more committed to preventing another Covid-19 outbreak, with four-in-five respondents concerned about the possibility of an outbreak. On top of that 87%were concerned about the ability of the economy to recover, and 72% were concerned their family and friends were not able to travel to New Zealand. Emanuel Kalafatelis from Research NZ talks us through the results.
