Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield is providing an update on Covid-19 cases in the country.

Yesterday, two more cases were confirmed, bringing the total of active cases to seven. The combined total of confirmed and probable cases was 1511.

Watch the briefing live here around 1pm:

A New Zealander in isolation at the Auckland Airport Novotel yesterday said they were all in lockdown after being told of a new case at the hotel. However, the prime minister’s office, the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Health all declined to comment ahead of today’s media briefing.

Meanwhile, Auckland’s isolation facilities have reached capacity, with 4272 in managed isolation and almost 900 more expected to arrive in the country in the next two days.

As a result, two new managed isolated facilities were opened in Rotorua over the weekend.
