Work is underway to improve the country’s managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) facilities, following an internal review of the Covid-19 transmission which occurred at two Auckland facilities – the Grand Millennium and Grand Mercure, TVNZ reports. The review conducted by the Ministry of Health and MIQ concluded the modes of transmission were aerosol transmission and direct exposure. Recommendations include improving barriers to staff testing and vaccination, continuing to improve data management systems, and improving systems, procedures and policies around IPC (infection prevention and control) practice.
