6 Pakistani cricket tests positive for COVID-19 in NZ | World | Instant News

New Zealand Cricket said while the positive cases were disappointing, their initial findings suggested New Zealand government protocols around the tour team were working.

On the breach of protocol, New Zealand Cricket said it would work more closely with Pakistani forces to ensure they understand and comply with isolation rules. No member of the community is threatened with extinction, he said.

New Zealand Director General of Health Dr. Ashley Bloomfield says violations of managed isolation rules are taken very seriously.

“It is an honor to come to New Zealand to exercise,” he said. “But the team must stick to rules designed to keep COVID-19 away from our community and keep our staff safe.”

Air Commodore Darryn Webb, head of Managed Isolation and Quarantine, said the focus now is to keep the remaining local troops and staff safe, so all Pakistani troops should remain in their rooms until further notice.

Pakistan will play three Twenty20 internationals against New Zealand, starting on 18 December, and the first two trial matches starting on 26 December.

New Zealand will draw against the West Indies before meeting Pakistan.

The West Indies team, which started the Twenty20 series on Friday, was also found to have violated protocol while in managed isolation earlier this month. CCTV footage shows the players mingling in hotel corridors and sharing food, meeting their internal bubble requirements.
