This weeks story is about an ex SPCA pet called Churchill, who found a new home with his new mum Danni.
"We adopted Churchill back in November and he has been an absolute darling! He settled in really well. He loves a lot of attention, which is great because I mostly work from home, so he is basically my new best friend. We are really pleased to have him in our family."
Stuff Wellington is launching a campaign to get people to start using the
Covid-19 tracer app.
New Zealand is still exposed to the new, more contagious, strains of Covid-19 despite the Government recently bolstering its border and pre-departure defences.
The number of daily Covid-19 tracer app scans has dropped from one million a day, at its height, to the current low of 300,000.
That means that if the more contagious variants get into the community, it will be hard to trace contacts.
Are you scanning? If not why not?
