A Christchurch woman in her 90s who was living in the Rosewood rest home is the country’s second death from Covid-19, the Health Ministry has confirmed.

Watch the media conference here:

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

Speakers:

  • Dr Caroline McElnay, Director of Public Health.

Director of Public Health Caroline McElnay said the “frail” woman could not have family around in her last couple of days because family were not allowed at the facility in Burwood hospital. Hospital staff provided her with comfort and support.

The woman was transferred from Rosewood Rest Home and Hospital to Burwood Hospital alongside other residents, as part of a cluster management process. She had common age-related conditions prior to testing positive.

Dr McElnay also said the number of new cases in New Zealand has risen to 44 – 23 new confirmed and 21 new probable cases.

There are now 16 people in hospital with the coronavirus – two in ICU are in a critical condition.

Yesterday, the number of new Covid-19 cases dropped for the fourth day in a row, prompting Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to congratulate the country’s efforts during the lockdown.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said yesterday there were 23 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and six probable cases.
