    Concern from doctors, after confirmation a Covid-19 patient is being flown from Fiji to New Zealand

    Concern from doctors, after confirmation a Covid-19 patient is being flown from Fiji to New Zealand


    The Ministry of Health initially declined the request because of intensive care capacity issues -- but now says the patient can be treated in Auckland.

    It's understood she is a woman in her 60s who works for the UN.

    Salaried Medical Specialists association executive director Sarah Dalton says our hospital ICUs aren't well-resourced.

    She says their nervous about maintaining capacity for demand -- and now have to bring in people from overseas.
