Over a year to make border testing mandatory

RNZ reports:

The Government’s move to make it mandatory for all testing of border workers to be recorded in a central register is being derided as months too late. …

Auckland University professor of medicine Des Gorman said it was ridiculous the register was not already mandatory.

“I, like most people, would be saying ‘oh, I’m very, very surprised that we’re having conversations about compulsory registers now’ – it’s April 2021. I would have thought this was something we would have nailed in March 2020.”

Better late than never I guess.
