Yes, the numbers are dropping since the rāhui.
Yes, the stats are looking good for whānau Māori. BUT. Did you know, testing for Māori in the regions has been significantly lower than in main centres? Our stats aren’t true if not enough of us are being tested. Who in your bubble has been coughing, under the weather, having a bit of a hard time breathing, using their inhaler a bit more often? Take them to get tested. Don’t wait. 6480 tests got done yesterday. We need to be represented in those numbers. Tīkarohia kia mārama, and we’ll kick COVID-19 in the ass.
