Yesterday and today there were no new cases of COVID-19.

It has now been 86 days since the last case of COVID-19 was acquired locally from an unknown source.

The total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 remains at 1206, which is the number reported to the World Health Organization.

There are no new recovered cases today, which means the total number of active cases in New Zealand’s managed isolation and quarantine facilities remains at 21.

There is no one in New Zealand receiving hospital-level care for COVID-19.

Yesterday, laboratories completed 1,754 tests.

That brings the total number of tests completed to date to 455,677

Testing remains an important part of the overall strategy to detect any community cases of COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

Anyone who is offered a swab is encouraged to take up that offer.
