Mongrel Mob members in Auckland are isolating after a woman went to the gang’s pad in Takanini where she lives, while waiting for her Covid-19 test result, NZ Herald reports. Mongrel Mob Kingdom leader Sonny Fatupaito said although gang members often distrust police or health authorities, he was encouraging his members to “cooperate, get tested and isolate with whanau”. The Covid-19 Delta outbreak has highlighted inequity in New Zealand’s healthcare system and Fatupaito said the Mongrel Mob was working closely with social agencies South Seas Healthcare and The Cause Collective to support whanau who are isolating.
