Some of those untested were mingling with more recent arrivals. There wasnt the separation of new & old arrivals
So those due for release could have easily picked up covid from untested new arrivals .
They are supposed to be protecting against worst case scenario .
The whole reason we are spending so many $$$ on quarantining is due to the supposedly high risk of infecting others.
If its a non issue (judging by actions) then why bother ?
@1101 I am not disagreeing or downplaying that the loose and disorganized quarantine and isolation was a serious problem (and we may yet see community transmission as a result, hopefully not) but what is done is unfortunately done. I am now assuming that quarantine and isolation is now strict and tight
However unlike inbound quarantine and isolation which can be controlled by virtue of what it is my concern is now about aircrew which still operates on a trust model but I understand today or tomorrow MoH are meeting with AIR NZ... Also it is unclear to me how maritime controls will be applied
Since air crew do not do 14 days quarantine are they now under going mandatory and regular testing?
