There are no new Covid-19 cases in isolation administered today, the Ministry of Health has announced this afternoon.
This information was released electronically because there was no government media conference scheduled for today.
Today’s update means the total number of confirmed cases is likely to remain at 1560.
It has now been 91 days since the last community transmission case in New Zealand.
The Ministry of Health said four cases reported earlier had recovered, bringing the total number of active cases in New Zealand’s quarantine and quarantine facilities managed to 20.
No one in New Zealand received hospital-level care for Covid-19.
Yesterday, 2476 tests were completed, 2022 were taken in the community, and 454 were taken in managed isolation and quarantine facilities, bringing the total number of New Zealand tests to 465,066.
The Health Ministry added that there would be targeted tests in Queenstown, South Auckland and Christchurch this weekend in connection with a recent case involving a traveler who tested positive for Covid-19 when he arrived in South Korea.
Travelers are in Manurewa and Takanini in South Auckland on June 20 to July 20, Queenstown on July 1-4 and in and around Christchurch Airport on July 20-21. Sylvia Park Mall in Auckland also reported today that the person had visited the food court.
The Ministry of Health said people who might be in these areas during dates that have or have symptoms need to contact their Healthline or doctor for assessment or testing.
