Trust in the Government “to do anything that makes sense” is waning as Auckland’s sticken hospitality sector faces more weeks of closed doors and no revenue, Newshub reports. Hospitality businesses are staring down the barrel of permanent closure as the region endures its eleventh week of lockdown. AM Show host Ryan Bridge said it’s evident Aucklanders are “stressed” and “mental health is up the bloody wazoo” in the Super City, the epicentre of the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19. Krishna Botica, a president of the Auckland branch of the Restaurant Association, said the sector would have “dearly loved” to have been included in step two of the Government’s roadmap, but again, hospitality has “been left behind”.
