Chris Hipkins is vowing to get to the bottom of the Covid-19 testing debacle.
It comes after Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield apologised for overestimating the testing capacity of our labs.
It meant tens of thousands of swabs were left unprocessed for more than five days, with some even being sent to Queensland.
