11:48 am on 24 March 2021


Microbiologist and Nine to Noon science commentator Dr Siouxsie Eiles looks at how Thursday marks a year since the country was plunged into Level 4 lockdown in an attempt to stem the rise in Covid-cases in the early stages of the pandemic.

She'll look at New Zealand's response compared to other countries, how successful the vaccine rollout has been in the UK, how it can impact other species like cats and the quirks of New Zealand's cases that are helping scientists to understand transmission better.

Associate Professor Dr Siouxsie Wiles is the head of Bioluminescent Superbugs Lab at the University of Auckland.
