The race is on for New Zealanders to get back from Australia following the Government’s decision to pause the Trans-Tasman bubble for eight weeks.

Kiwis over in Australia have 7 days to get back into New Zealand with those travelling from New South Wales needing to stay in MIQ.

However, there have been questions over the decision not to enforce an MIQ stay on those returning from other states.

Des Gorman a Professor of Medicine at the University of Auckland is one of those questioning this decision.

Tim Beveridge spoke to him about why this decision could be problematic and why Kiwi’s would find another lockdown intolerable.
