Health Minister Chris Hipkins is delivering the daily Covid-19 update at the Beehive.

There are four new cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand today, two linked to the Auckland August cluster and two imported.

The Ministry of Health has confirmed that the two community cases have epidemiological links to existing cases in the bereavement sub-cluster and back to the Mt Roskill Evangelical Fellowship group.

As for the imported cases: one is a man in his 30s and the other is a woman in her 50s. Both cases arrived in New Zealand on a flight from India on 27 August.

There are three people in hospital with Covid-19: one is in isolation on a ward in North Shore Hospital. Two are in ICU, at North Shore and Waikato hospitals.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Health confirmed six new cases of Covid-19, all in the community.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said they were all linked to the Mt Roskill Evangelical Fellowship Church group.

He said all members of the church group were being asked to be re-tested, even if they had no symptoms.

Four of those cases were part of the group of 14 that were associated with a new event, a series of bereavement activities, that was linked to the Mt Roskill cluster, Dr Bloomfield said yesterday.
