    Concerns about the supply and demand of PPE - for now, and in the future

    Concerns about the supply and demand of PPE - for now, and in the future


    A review's being conducted after a healthcare worker was infected with Covid-19 at Auckland's Jet Park quarantine facility, while looking after a person with the virus.

    But the Nurses Organisation is calling for a full review of PPE.

    Director Kerri Nuku says during the first wave of Covid-19, nurses didn't have trust and confidence in the supply and demand.

    She says there needs to be evidence in a thorough and transparent inquiry - showing the accessibility of PPE in future.
