Poll: Do you think scanning should be compulsory at bars and nightclubs?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi Auckland neighbours,

A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.

The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.

Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

This is why we have a water shortage.

Jay from New Lynn

In my little neighbourhood alone, in the last few years, 6 x 3 bedroom houses have been replaced by 34 x 4 or 5 bedroom dwellings plus a 100 child industrial sized childcare centre with 3 floors of 2 person, shoebox sized boarding house rooms on top, with yet more single house sections earmarked for intensive developments. Developers should be charged a lot more to pay for all the extra infrastructure and water needed.
