Another week of level four lockdown is devastating news for Auckland businesses bleeding money while the economic cost to the city continues to mount, NZ Herald reports. Auckland Business Chamber CEO, Michael Barnett accused the Government of ignoring the mounting economic and social costs: “Auckland cannot afford to stay in Alert Level 4. We’re bleeding tens of millions of dollars each week but there are social and personal impacts negatively impacting people’s wellbeing, confidence, and willingness to comply with this health first approach,” he said.
