Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield is giving an update on Covid-19.

Yesterday New Zealand recorded one new case of Covid-19, of a man in his 60s who is in quarantine after arriving from Pakistan, which brought the number of confirmed and probable cases to 1507. There were three three active cases.

The man had arrived on Air NZ flight 124 from Melbourne on 13 June, showed symptoms on 15 June and was swabbed the next day. He is staying at the Jet Park Hotel, and was transferred there with his travelling companion after developing symptoms.

The government bolstered its quarantine procedures after two women were allowed to leave quarantine without being tested and later were found to be infected.

Former RNZ reporter Alexa Cook, who is in quarantine at the Novotel Auckland Airport, having arrived from the UK, said the facility was being managed very strictly and nothing seemed to have changed.

But she said she was finally tested on day five, rather than day three, and had asked several times to be tested. The government said those in managed isolation and quarantine would be tested on day three and day 12 of managed isolation.
