False positive Covid-19 case in Wellington

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A case of Covid-19 picked up in Wellington has turned out to be a false alarm.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield on Thursday announced 13 new cases of community transmission in New Zealand – all outside Wellington.

But answering questions, he said there was a positive test that came up in Wellington. Re-testing came up negative, meaning it was a false-positive. To read more, click here

The Mt Vic tunnel, a long road to nowhere

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Politicians have been been talking about a second Mt Victoria tunnel since the 1950s.
A second tunnel is a key component in Lets Gets Wellington Moving, although progress on that is at a snail's pace.
This week the Green Party came up with a new idea - two new additional tunnels. The Greens would not block the proposed car tunnel but would like to see two more built.
One would be a dedicated walking and cycling tunnel parallel to the existing Mt Victoria car tunnel, the second would be a light rail tunnel in Newtown, near Wellington Zoo.

What do you think?
