New Zealand Nurses Union organiser Sarah Barker said the country was being told “over and over” that the health system is fine and “well-placed” to handle a Covid-19 surge. “That might be what DHB executives are reporting, but Auckland nurses say they’re already dealing with caseloads they can’t handle … people are falling through the cracks right now.”
