As part of atoning for his quarantine breaking antics, Health Minister David Clark has today vowed to personally shake hands and apologise to every Dunedin resident before the end of the quarantine period.
“I know I’ve messed up,” said Dr Clark, facing the media from Wellington today.
“I’m hoping that by going door-to-door, meeting and shaking the hand of every Dunedinite I can, people will truly understand my dedication to public health and my dedication to this lockdown”.
Dr Clark had come under fire for skirting the nationwide quarantine in the wake of the coronavirus’ arrival in New Zealand, at one point driving 20 km to take his family to the goddamn beach.
