A new managed isolation system hopes to beat some of the bots.

At 8am a virtual lobby will open, placing people in a queue for 3000 managed isolation vouchers released at 9am.

Alexandra Birt of Grounded Kiwis told Kate Hawkesby there are some positives to the new system.

“It definitely will affect the bots in the sense that, the ones that would notify you the times that the release would occur obviously won’t need those anymore, because we know that the release will occur at 9am New Zealand time, so from that perspective, there's definitely greater transparency.”
