Covid-19 update with Professor Michael Baker

From Sunday Morning, 9:38 am on 5 September 2021

University of Otago epidemiologist and regular Sunday Morning guest Professor Michael Baker offered a grim reality check during the week when he suggested that New Zealanders do not fully understand how dire the situation is likely to become if the Government's elimination strategy fails.

Indeed, there has even been a suggestion that lockdown, for Auckland at least, could remain in place until Christmas if the situation spirals out of control.
