    New Zealanders are being urged to step up and help the health system

    New Zealanders are being urged to step up and help the health system

    The Health Ministry reported there were 853 Covid-19 patients in hospital yesterday, including seven in ICU, and seven patients died.

    Australia and New Zealand Intensive Care Society's regional chair says prior to covid - up to 15 percent of elective surgeries were cancelled due to a lack of ICU capacity.

    Craig Carr says Covid is causing that rate to rise - and the community fears essential cancer and cardiac surgery will be next - as they're seeing from colleagues overseas.

    He says if you're eligible for a booster and haven't had one - please do - and if we're all kind and patient with one another we can get through this together.
