'Crazy' to allow unvaccinated people to fly out of Auckland, experts say

Leading health experts say it is unbelievable people who have not been vaccinated can still travel outside Auckland for any reason.

“People should be doubly vaccinated before they can do this,” Dr Apisalome Talemaitoga, a GP in Manukau and Chair of the Pasifika GP Network, said.

"The fact we are still relying on a negative PCR test 'before leaving Auckland' sounds so 'old hat'.”

Ōtago University public health expert Nick Wilson said anyone going to the South Island should be vaccinated.

“Otherwise we are wasting these precious weeks and months with lockdowns to boost vaccination levels.

“It’s crazy, and I’ve been saying since the beginning of the outbreak ... we should not be allowing unvaccinated people to cross internal borders.”

'Crazy' to allow unvaccinated people to fly out of Auckland, experts say
Considering soo it will be difficult to fly anywhere if you not vaccinated judging by the rules when the passports coming. Recall Air NZ were talking about only vaccinated people allowed to fly as well.

The Christchurch cases are a bit of a mess. The time in the community has gone from 1 week to 2 weeks. Also failing to scan during an outbreak. I know in the lower levels its easy to forget it but usually during those times there is less focus on covid. At the moment while we are in an outbreak its front and centre on all of the news outlets, advertising on all forms of media.
