The Auckland isolation hotel where the three latest cases of Covid-19 seem to have originated will gradually be wound down, while officials continue to investigate what’s gone wrong behind the wire, Stuff reports. Officials are wary of the risk of a sudden “decanting” of guests from the Pullman to other facilities; instead, no new returnees will check into the Waterloo Quadrant hotel for their mandatory 14-day stay, meaning the facility will gradually empty. The call to wind down the facility removes upwards of 300 beds from the managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) system, which is already struggling to accommodate the number of returnees.
