Covid-19: Woman waited with other sick people to be tested

A woman tested at an Auckland pop-up clinic had to queue in a tent with other symptomatic people - with little social distancing and hardly anyone wearing a mask. Auckland hit a record number of tests on Wednesday - nearly 8000, with people queuing for hours. Thursday is set to be a big number as well. The woman, who is an RNZ employee, had her test at the Otara pop-up clinic. She says she was surprised to be ushered into an open-ended tent which, at one stage, had 13 people in it - all of whom were sick. She told RNZ health correspondent Rowan Quinn that after waiting in her car for three hours, she was directed to be tested as a walk-in patient.
