Judith Collins: National pushes for Auckland reopening after record 102 new cases

National's pushing to reopen Auckland on the day new Covid-19 cases have hit triple digits.

There were 102 community infections recorded today — 94 in Auckland and eight in the Waikato.

But the Opposition says fully-vaccinated Aucklanders should be able to frequent cafes, bars and gyms.

Leader Judith Collins told Andrew Dickens it's not the region's fault the Government hasn't delivered vaccine passports.

“Ten weeks of lockdown in Auckland with no end in sight — peoples’ mental health is being extraordinarily badly affected.”

Collins also said vaccine history should be on the Covid Tracer App.

"Other countries have been able to do it, I have no idea why the Government hasn't moved faster."

The Government has indicated vaccine passports will roll out next month.
