It is absolutely deplorable that Waikato Police had to turn around 20% of vehicles of people breaking the lockdown due to Covid - 19. As an over 70 year old wanting to get things done around the house and not able to leave the property I find that these people want to stretch out the lock down period and then lose their livelihoods to be totally irresponsible. The Police need to throw the book at them because this is inexcusable.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
