Another plea for help from Auckland businesses. 

Heart of the City says Covid-19 has had a severe impact on companies and the cries for help are escalating. 

Chief Executive Viv Beck told Mike Hosking there needs to be targeted help for businesses in the form of a Covid loan scheme. 

"On Friday, we had the announcement of the three extra resurgence payments at $1.2 billion. High cost, but the reality is, as much as it's welcomed, it's really only a drop in the bucket for some."
