At least three gangs now have Covid-19 cases in their ranks.
Stuff can reveal an Auckland Hells Angels prospect has tested positive for the virus and is now inside Jet Park quarantine facility.
A patched Black Power member earlier caught Covid-19 during his brief stint on bail before his recall to Mt Eden prison.
And multiple Mongrel Mob members across at least two chapters have also tested positive, it is understood.
But neither police brass nor health officials want to talk about the extent of Covid-19 in Auckland’s criminal underworld.
An Auckland media spokeswoman referred requests for comment to the Ministry of Health.
The ministry cited privacy in refusing to discuss the prevalence of Covid-19 in gangs.
“Unless there are compelling public health reasons, information about individuals is not released,” a ministry spokesman said in a statement.
“For privacy reasons, the Ministry of Health does not share personal information about people who have tested positive for Covid-19 including groups or organisations they might be part of.”
