One previously reported case has recovered. The total number of active cases in New Zealand is 85. The total number of confirmed cases is 2,060.

The total number of tests processed by laboratories to date is 1,801,771.

On Wednesday, 6,448 tests were processed. The seven-day rolling average up to yesterday is 7,167 tests processed per day.

Today’s managed isolation case numbers again underscore the value of having early testing in place. All people arriving into New Zealand must remain in their rooms until those day 0/1 tests results come back.

It’s also not uncommon to see some of these cases reclassified as historical cases, which are not infectious. This is why we are continuing to publish the cumulative number of historical cases, as below.

Historical cases
Since January 1, there have now been 37 historical cases, out of a total of 249 cases.
