Today marked the fourth Epidemic Response Committee meeting. Lillian recaps the main points covered, as reported by Laura Kvigstad. 

The committee heard from Otago University professor and epidemiologist Sir David Skegg and Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield. Minister of Health David Clark also addressed the committee, beginning with an apology for his repeated breaches of the rāhui.

The Epidemic Response Committee was established in late March to consider and report to the House of Representatives on matters relating to the Government's management of Covid-19. The chairperson is Simon Bridges, leader of Opposition.

The next commitee meeting is scheduled for 10am tomorrow morning.
