Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Coronavirus champions: unsung heroes of the lockdown

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours,
We've reached the half-way point in the minimum four weeks of coronavirus level four lockdown.
It's been tough for many, and even though New Zealand's case numbers are looking promising, we all know that restrictions might need to go on even longer.
But these strange times have also brought out the best in some of our communities - and now Stuff is celebrating New Zealand's coronavirus champions.
Every day, we will salute the essential workers, the unsung heroes and the community volunteers who are keeping the country going through the lockdown.
Check out our first one below, Waikato nurse Debra Larsen who has been on the front line of testing during the lockdown.
We also want to hear about the unsung heroes in your communities.
Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised?
