The cabinet has. It was decided in principle that Tamaki Makurao would go to Alert Level 3 next week. And we will review the settings on Monday.

Ordner said. Morning report. Good surveillance testing rates will provide further reassurance, especially from seven key areas of Auckland.

Rod Jackson, professor of epidemiology at the University of Auckland. Another week of Level 4 restrictions is said to be “probably not” long enough. To control the Auckland Delta outbreak.

Jackson said. Checkpoint It was possible that the epidemic could be controlled in a week if people followed the rules – but it was “a little disappointing.” “If people follow the rules, we can knock it on the head, but six people are not following the rules,” he said.

Arden said the public health team, the Ministry of Health and the Director General of Health’s advice was that one week was enough and provided additional capacity for monitoring.

“The suggestion and the vision is that we will be able to move to this place.”

He said it was not necessary to take any level down so that there were no so-called mysteries or unrelated matters, as he was concerned about only a few of them.

One of the 17 still unconnected cases was a “handful” of concern, with the sequence of genomes indicating a relatively short transmission to others.

“So that means we’re honoring a handful. If we’re able to get a good look around the areas where we were and the suburbs that help us get extra reassurance.

“If we don’t see more crops in these areas, it gives us more confidence.

“And then it’s just an explanation of what’s going on with the issues that come up.”

People in seven major suburbs of Auckland are being encouraged to take the Covid 19 test even if they have no symptoms. Mount Eden, Macy’s, Menger, Fiona, Star, Papatoto and Menorca are under investigation for unrelated cases, or clusters that may be unexpected cases.

Ordner said Level 3 had been used to handle the epidemic from the beginning, and was not abruptly lifting restrictions.

Vaccination

Arden said no decision has been made on the need for people to be vaccinated to attend certain gatherings, as has been done in other countries.

“But what I keep in mind is to move our events sector forward and those involved in the big events will find us to devise ways to make their events proof of the future.”

“This is a call to us. This is the work we need to do. ۔

“So we’ll keep thinking.”

The Prime Minister said that the government would continue to insist on the easiest way to vaccinate people who drive or walk in clinics, even though mobile vaccination units are being set up in the services.

Dr Anthony Jordan, clinical leader of the city’s vaccination program, said he was in the final stages of organizing mobile vaccination units to take to the streets. Going to the clinic.

“We have specific areas where we have a target population, they have been used as a tool in the past,” Ordner said.

“But what we’re trying to get people to do right now is the things that go through the clinics, the clinics, the places where we can work very easily in large numbers.

“Our vaccine team is also working on some of these mobile options. This has been a small part of our rollout to date.

Community health providers were offering pick-up services and other solutions to meet the needs of their communities.

“It’s already happening in some areas, how big it will be in the future.”
