Epidemiologist Michael Baker says it’s clear the current COVID-19 outbreak isn’t under control, Newshub reports. And it’ll be hard to shift Auckland down alert levels next week if there’s a pattern of high cases in the coming days. The mystery cases are of concern to Professor Baker: “If you’re getting those cases every day, that’s a sign that we haven’t got control of the outbreak in Auckland at the moment.” At this point, it’s Auckland that cuts a lonely figure in New Zealand’s Delta dilemma. And vaccines and testing are the only way the city just might be able to unshackle itself from what seems like endless restrictions.
