The All of Government COVID-19 National Response will provide an update at 1.00 pm today.

Speaker:
Director-General of Health, Dr Ashley Bloomfield

The most recent case in the Southern district was reported on 18 April. Since then there have been no new cases in the district, making today the 40th consecutive day of no new cases in the Southern DHB region.

Latest updates from live stream:

  • There are no new cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand today, the 6th day in a row with no new cases.
  • There are only 8 cases considered active.
  • Bloomfield is commenting on Eileen Hunter, a resident of St Margaret’s rest home who died on Sunday and whose family believed had died of Covid-19, despite her having been considered recovered.
  • Eileen Hunter’s death is now counted in the tally of Covid-19 deaths, bringing the total number of deaths to 22.
  • There is nobody in hospital with Covid-19 currently.
  • The WHO has reminded countries to be cautious about removing restrictions, as epidemics tend to come in waves. A second wave is still a possibility in NZ for a number of months, Bloomfield says.
  • Heading into the coming long weekend, stay safe and well, Bloomfield says.
  • The Ministry of Health is working on protocols for flight crews.
  • Eradication of the coronavirus has to be a global effort, Ashley Bloomfield says.
    “It’s very hard for New Zealand to say we’re on a pathway to eradicate a virus that clearly is still incredibly prevalent and growing in prevalence offshore.”
