Manukau Institute of Technology’s student council president Micah Sili asked for a bit of kindness after some students were victims of cyber bullying.

Speaking on Breakfast today Micah Sili asked for people to “show a bit of kindness” to her fellow students in the wake of Saturday night’s announcement that Auckland would return to Alert Level 3.

MIT in South Auckland is one of the key locations of interest in the latest Covid-19 outbreak after it was revealed the 21-year-old - known as Case M - who tested positive on Saturday had been on campus while infectious.

Case M broke Covid-19 rules by visiting MIT, a gym and food outlets when he should have been isolating following a Covid-19 test.

"One case doesn't define the whole institute," Sili said.

“MIT students need a lot of support at this time.”

Twenty-one people have been identified as close contacts of the MIT student.
