  • New Zealand 'rubbish bin spread Covid' theory not likely - health expert

    On October 2, the ministry announced the likely source of a September cluster that infected six people was a rubbish bin touched by a returnee while they were in isolation at Christchurch’s Crowne Plaza Hotel.

    “We can never be 100 per cent confident but this is the current theory,” director of public health Dr Caroline McElnay told Stuff on Wednesday.

    Professor Nick Wilson, from Otago University’s public health department, said it was far more likely an infected person coughed in a shared area in a managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) facility and someone else, some minutes later, breathed the same air.

      Good work. 'D' might have been running the exhaust fan in the bathroom. That would create negative air pressure in the room so then hallway air could have rushed in.
