Huge proportion of gang members infected

Jared Savage reports:

There have been 178 individuals identified since the Delta outbreak in August with gang links, police confirmed to the Herald, according to police assessments of every community case to help decide where they should isolate. …

The Herald has previously revealed that half of all community cases in the Delta outbreak were flagged by police as “high risk” and MIQ staff were worried about working in the facilities, according to newly released documents.

According to the latest Police data there are 1,600 gang members in Auckland so it looks like around 10% of gang members have tested positive for Covid-19, compared to 0.1% for the overall population.
