Some hospitals say assessing life expectancy of patients is impossible and won’t provide these. Photo: 123rf.com MBIE wants the supporting evidence in applications for an emergency allocation to skip the queue for managed isolation. But in some cases hospitals won’t provide life expectancy information, arguing it is too difficult to say.

Of those who took up the deferral option, 80 percent had come off, however Reserve Bank data showed $2.6 billion worth of loans remained deferred.
