Labour Party deputy leader Kelvin Davis says nothing is being held back from New Zealanders about the COVID-19 situation here.

As well as battling the flare-up in community transmission of the coronavirus, the government is having to dampen down internet conspiracy theories as well as insinuations from the National Party that it was not being as open as it could be.

Mr Davis says when the outbreak was discovered a week ago, it was a matter of hours before the Government had decided on a response and told the public.

"We have our updates in the morning at about 11 am and then the Prime Minister is announcing it at 1 pm so the time frame is getting shorter. New Zealanders are hearing all the factual information within hours of cabinet ministers. There has been no withholding of information," he says.
