    Auckland's five month long lockdown is continuing to have impacts on breast screening

    Auckland's five month long lockdown is continuing to have impacts on breast screening


    Ministry of Health data shows more than 50-thousand women are still waiting for a mammogram since last year.

    Auckland provides more than 50 percent of the backlog, with 39-thousand screens needed to meet its target.

    Breast Cancer Foundation CEO Ah-Leen Rayner hopes the red traffic light won't cause any more disruptions.

    She suspects some women will put focusing on their health on hold during this time.
