South Auckland is disappointed by the latest Covid-19 cases, but a local councillor says it’s pointless pointing fingers and moaning.
On Saturday evening, it was announced that a 21-year-old sibling of a Papatoetoe High School student had tested positive for Covid-19. The 21-year-old’s mother also tested positive for the virus.
This was despite their sibling having tested negative for the virus three times.
Auckland was put into alert level 3 lockdown from Sunday at 6am while the rest of the country was put into alert level 2.
At the time the alert level changes were announced, there was no direct link to the current Auckland cluster. However, it has since been confirmed the 21-year-old, known as Case M, is genomically linked to another family in the Auckland cluster.
