    A Coromandel care centre is reassuring people an outbreak of influenza A is under control, after six residents died in the space of 12 days

    A Coromandel care centre is reassuring people an outbreak of influenza A is under control, after six residents died in the space of 12 days


    The virus was first identified at Whitianga Care Centre and Village on January 26.

    Oceania Healthcare General Manager for Sales and Services Anita Hawthorne says since then, they've worked closely with Te Whatu Ora.

    She says they followed all infection control procedures including deep cleaning, isolating those with symptoms and wearing full PPE.

    Hawthorne says there are currently no residents or team members with any symptoms, and no one is in hospital.
