LIVE update on managed isolation

The minister in charge of managed isolation facilities Megan Woods and the head of managed isolation and quarantine Air Commodore Darryn Webb are giving an update on COVID-19.

Education Minister Chris Hipkins this morning said there was no good reason to keep children away from school despite the COVID-19 outbreak.

"All of the new cases that we're seeing of COVID-19 in the Auckland community are coming from known contacts so these were people who were already isolating so they wouldn't be in school and they wouldn't be in the workplace, he told Morning Report. "That should give people reassurance that this cluster is being contained."

Looking at the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on jobs and incomes, a report compiled by the Ministry of Social Development found the number of beneficiaries rose by 12 percent in April this year, the highest increase in the past 24 years.
