Recovered coronavirus patients have said they are 'treated like lepers' and have even been abused because they caught the virus. 

One Auckland father, Geoff Muliaga Brown, recovered from COVID-19 in April - but says nearly two months later people still treat him differently and have even filmed him at a supermarket. 

Mr Brown's case is connected to a cluster at the city's Marist College school, which his daughter attends, where 96 confirmed and probable cases were identified - the country's second-largest outbreak.
