Today there is one new confirmed case of COVID-19 to report in New Zealand.

The case is linked to the St Margaret’s cluster in Auckland and is a household contact of an earlier case. Because of their connection to the earlier case, the person has been in isolation since the beginning of Level 4. This case is another example of the ‘long tail’ of COVID-19 and why ongoing vigilance is so important.

Today’s case means our total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 is 1,154, which is the number we report to the World Health Organization.

Our combined total of confirmed and probable cases is 1,504.

Today we have recorded 97% of all confirmed and probable cases as having recovered from COVID-19, an increase of three on yesterday, for a total of 1,455.

There are no additional deaths to report.

There is one person receiving hospital-level care for COVID-19; they are in Middlemore and are not in ICU.

Yesterday our laboratories completed 5,408 tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 250,246.
