The City of Sails, which has borne the brunt of the nearly two-month-long Delta outbreak, now has 86.1% of eligible people with one or both jabs, climbing four spots in the “Top Towns” race to be fully vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus, NZ Herald reports. “Top Town” is an initiative run by NZ Herald as part of The 90% Project, which aims to get 90% of eligible Kiwis fully vaccinated by Christmas. Meanwhile, epidemiologist Professor Michael Baker said he is uneasy about the “exponential rise” of cases in the city and whether the health system can handle a potential large number of hospitalisations.
