How were healthcare workers infected with Covid-19 at work? The Ministry of Health doesn't know

Brian from New Lynn

More than 180 coronavirus cases were healthcare workers but the Ministry of Health doesn't know how they were infected. Doctors and nurses unions say this isn't good enough because being infected with a deadly virus is a health and safety issue.Twenty-four days ago, the Herald asked how … View moreMore than 180 coronavirus cases were healthcare workers but the Ministry of Health doesn't know how they were infected. Doctors and nurses unions say this isn't good enough because being infected with a deadly virus is a health and safety issue.Twenty-four days ago, the Herald asked how many health workers were infected with Covid-19 at their place of work. Today, it provided figures that show 183, or 12 per cent, of all 1504 confirmed and probable cases were health workers.
But the Ministry couldn't say how they were infected - whether it was a patient or colleague - though acknowledged "the importance of understanding where and how people contracted Covid-19." "We continue to work to broaden our understanding and collate this information, so we can continue to keep New Zealanders safe," it said in a statement.
Resident Doctors' Association national secretary, Deborah Powell, said that the Ministry couldn't provide data on how healthcare workers were infected "simply isn't good enough". "We've failed them and we need to know why." One of the measures of success in fighting the virus should have been ensuring healthcare workers were protected and without the data that was impossible to gauge, said Powell. "I am incredibly disappointed that the data isn't available. "Not all of them would have contracted Covid in the workplace that's why not collecting that data is so difficult. Twelve per cent is a really high figure and we think we need to know more about this." Under the Health and Safety at Work Act workers are entitled to work in environments where health risks are properly controlled. Kerri Nuku, of the NZ Nursing Organisation, is disappointed the Ministry of Health can't say how healthcare workers were infected at work. The Nurses Organisation Kaiwhakahaere Kerri Nuku said employers had obligations to keep their staff safe and the "critical" data should be easily accessible so it could be learned from.
District Health Boards and the Ministry needed to know how frontline healthcare workers were infected in order to prevent it happening again.
"I'm just astounded actually to be quite honest. I guess I'm speechless because I'm disappointed. All along the catch cry has been 'Be safe, feel safe' and we've had to take comfort to that."Nuku said there was also "information missing" about how many healthcare workers needed to be stood down or go into isolation after coming into contact with a Covid-19 case. Both Powell and Nuku were also fuming at WorkSafe's refusal to investigate how seven nurses at Waitākere Hospital caught Covid-19 because Waitematā District Health Board had already reviewed what happened. The DHB's investigation only looked into three nurses' infections and was neither independent nor robust, Powell said. WorkSafe said its role as a health and safety regulator "generally doesn't involve investigating the spread of infectious disease". But it intended to conduct a review of the whole regulatory framework to "ensure the most appropriate agency intervenes when it comes to matters involving the public health sector". Director general of health Ashley Bloomfield said it surprised him the data on health workers' infections wasn't available as the Ministry had previously reported on healthcare workers who'd been infected in their workplace. On April 15, the Ministry found of 107 healthcare workers, 46 were infected by an exposure to a patient or colleague. But that information has ceased to be reported. Health Minister David Clark said he'd ask the Ministry for the latest figures and expected them to be "working very carefully through these details" and "learning lessons as they go". He was asked whether he thought it was a health and safety issue but did not respond to the question.

POLICE---Play it safe and be kind on the roads this weekend

Brian from New Lynn

Be kind and take extra care on the road this weekend – that’s the message from Police and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency this Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

"As people prepare to go away for the first long weekend since lockdown, we want to remind them they will be sharing the road with a lot more people than they’ve been used to for a while. And with more people comes more risk,” says Acting Superintendent Gini Welch, National Manager for Road Policing.
“We need people to remember the basics of road safety; wear your seatbelt, stay within the speed limit and drive to the conditions of the road, put your phone away, always make sure you are sober and alert.
Share the driving if you can. “This is the first long weekend the country has had since the start of the year where people are actually able to leave town as part of Alert Level 2. “We know people will be keen to catch up with friends and family they have missed around the country.
That likely means they’ll be eager to get going and get there. “So we want to remind people that there will be traffic and there will be hold ups, so it’s important to stay calm and patient. The important thing is arriving at your destination safely. “Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Kiwis have done a great job of being kind to each other. And being kind on the roads is just as vital as anywhere else. “How you act on the roads has an impact on everybody else around you. So, let’s remember to be kind and take care of each other,” Acting Superintendent Welch says. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Senior Road Safety Manager Fabian Marsh says Queen’s Birthday weekend is also a good time for people to move into a safe winter driving mindset. “While most of the country has had a long summer and an unusually fine autumn, winter weather is starting to set in. We’re now seeing a drop in overnight temperatures, and more cold, wet, windy days. The change in the weather is a good prompt to think about safe winter driving. “Ice, fog, rain, and snow can all make for treacherous road conditions, so it’s important to allow extra time for your journeys and drive to the road and weather conditions. “It’s also important to ensure your car is safe, roadworthy, and well equipped for winter driving, with a safe spare tyre, lights, brakes and windscreen-wipers all working, and a clean windscreen inside and out.” Waka Kotahi’s website contains more easy tips for safe winter driving: nzta.govt.nz/winterjourneys. “These tips are particularly important heading into the long Queen’s Birthday holiday weekend, with more traffic on our roads,” says Mr Marsh. Police officers will continue to be highly visible on the roads throughout the long weekend, ensuring those who are travelling are driving safely.
